These quick and easy monsters, inspired by this cute project posted to the Write.Click.Scrapbook. Tumblr, were so darn cute I wanted to make more, so I did.
I made one, gave it some legs, and put it on a card:
I made monster twins…
and used them to make a Halloween matching game:
("They did the match, they did the monster match...")
I thought about some non-Halloween uses for these cuties and made them and put them on placecards:
I thought about some other things that could be made with these monsters (but didn’t make any of these myself – gotta leave something for all of you to do!):
- Cupcake toppers
- Party invitations
- Name badges
- Treat bag toppers
If you want some directions for quick and easy monster-making, here you go:
- Cut a monster head/body from patterned paper or cardstock (optional: round corners).
- Add eyes made using a small circle punch (white cardstock) and a hole punch (black cardstock).
- Add a nose made using the same small circle punch.
- Handcut some funky spiky hair and glue it to the back of the monster so that it sticks up from the top.
- Marvel at the cuteness.
- Make another one.
If these monsters aren’t quick and easy enough for you, check out these really quick and easy awesome monster-y eyes Beth Proudfoot designed and has made available as a printable:
