Be My Valentine: Brighten Up Your Valentine’s Day with Kleenex #ShareTheSoft

There are certain things that are a part of just about every holiday. Family, of course, is one of them, but I’m talking about the little things that you might not always notice. For me, one of those things is Kleenex tissues. Yeah, that’s right, I said Kleenex tissues.

For instance, when my hubby and I decided to use “World’s Best Grandma” and “World’s Best Grandpa” shirts as Christmas gifts to announce my pregnancy, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. But Kleenex was there.

Speaking of Kleenex, Walmart has four-packs with a $4 off coupon for Vudu.com. Being a fan of watching movies using Vudu, I immediately added the tissues to my cart. If you think about it, the partnership between Vudu and Kleenex is pretty clever. When you’re sick, you need tissues, and what’s better than a good movie when you’re laid up in bed all day?

In addition to using the Vudu coupon to watch a movie, I also had an idea for a Valentine’s Day craft that our little one would definitely enjoy.Valentines' Day CraftFor the Valentine’s Day Kleenex craft, I decided to make a kid’s Valentine’s card box. Remember how exciting Valentine’s Day was when you were a kid? When I was a little girl, it was one of my favorite holidays and I couldn’t wait to give and receive cards from all my classmates.

To make your own Kleenex box Valentine’s card box, you’ll need two square Kleenex boxes, ribbon, craft paper, and some foam hearts (hearts cut from paper will do, too).Valentines' Day CraftFirst, you’ll need to cut off one side of each box and then tape the two boxes together to create one large box. Then wrap your jumbo Kleenex box in craft paper.Valentines' Day CraftAfter your box is wrapped, cut a card slot in the top of the box. Then place ribbon around both ends (stick it in place using a glue gun) and decorate the box with foam or paper hearts. It’s pretty simple, really!Valentine's Day CraftAs for that movie I planned to watch on Vudu with my hubby for Valentine’s Day? Well, I didn’t want to wait that long, so I talked him into watching a movie this weekend. He wanted to watch something with zombies in it, while I had my eye on something with a little less gore. (Guess who won that battle?)

If you’re unfamiliar with Vudu, it’s pretty simple to use. You can buy digital movies on the site and watch them on your computer or connect your computer to your TV and watch them on in all of their high-definition widescreen glory. Valentines' Day CraftSigning up on Vudu is a breeze and redeeming your $4 Vudu coupon is simple, too. Just visit Walmart, enter the promo code on the coupon, and follow the on-screen instructions! It’s super easy.vudu.com kleenexFor more details about my Kleenex adventure and detailed instructions to redeem your coupon, check out my Google+ album. We ended up watching Brave and as I suspected, it was a really cute movie!
