Homemade Pokemon cards

Like most kids, mine have discovered Pokemon. The cards are all the rage at school, with the tv show sort of just being secondary. The cards are where it's at.
While their collection has grown, my boys decided to give it a go on their own and design and develop their own Pokemon. Like most of our After-Dinner-Projects the kids spent time drawing, coloring and cutting to get their Pokemon's power and abilities just right.

They worked so hard on the cards I decided the best idea would be to laminate them to make them as 'real' as possible! I bought this Purple Cows Hot and Cold Laminator and I caught it on sale for just $14.99, what a deal!
It came with a bunch of different sized laminating pockets, and the small ones were the pefect fit. We turned the machine on and slipped the homemade cards in...

...watched them slide out...
...just a little trim...
...and voila! Perfectly homemade Pokemon cards!
The kids loved the results and got to work drawing more, and more new cards. It was like a Pokemon factory up in here! It made all their work a lot more fun and now we have ideas for a ton of new crafts!
