Monster Valentines

Monster Valentines @amandaformaro Crafts by Amanda

Sometimes it’s hard to find Valentines that both boys and girls can agree on. I was watching a rerun of Home Improvement the other night where Brad was going to give a GI Joe Valentine to his girl. Turned out he wouldn’t give it to her at all because some other boys had Made her a Valentine with his own hands. I bet if Brad had made her one of these cute monsters she would have liked it!

What you need:

  • Card stock in various colors
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Tape
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue

What you do:

  1. Fold card stock into small cards for your Valentines.
  2. Cut simple heart shapes from different colored card stock.
  3. If making paper eyes from white and green paper, like the one-eyed monster pictured, attach that to the heart first. If using googly eyes, wait until after you've attached the heart to the card.
  4. To add pipe cleaner arms or antennae, use a piece of tape to attach them to the back of the heart.
  5. Use glue stick to attach the heart to the card.
  6. Add googly eyes with white craft glue. You can add eyebrows and smiles with a fine tip marker.

I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
