Sisters...you gotta love them, right? So it's two days before my nephew's birthday party and my sister calls asking if I can help with goodie bags. She KNOWS, I just don't fill a bag with goodies. I have to do something creative. So of course I say yes even though I really have no time to do it.
He didn't have a specific theme so first I thought, Oh, I'll make some balloons or stars or something "boyish" and generic, but then I did some pinterest surfing. (Is there another word for that??) I saw these cute monster cards which required a lot of punched shapes. I loved them! But I also knew I wasn't going to punch individual circles for teeth. So, as usual being inspired by this idea, I came up with my own bright, cute little monsters.
So, going directly to my pile of scraps, I cut two each of 2.5x3" plain cardstock. (x 15 since I am making 15 of them - in other words...30 LOL). So, I made different shades of blue, green, yellow, red, and pink. I love that his favorite color is pink :).
Then I grabbed some scrap gray for the eyeball bases. 15 of 1" circles and 15 of 3/4" circles. White scraps for 15 3/4" circles and 15 1/2" circles. Black scrap for 30 1/4" circles. I wanted the eyes different sizes to give a quirky look. I grabbed more scrap white cardstock and punch strips of scallopped edges. These are for the teeth.
After assembling the eyes, and punching the teeth. I grabbed half of the bases and used my Creative Memories circle cutter to create a rounded edge on them. Assembled all the faces and then mounted them on the matching color base.
Here's some photos:
