Love Monster Banner

Happy Valentine's Day Eve!!!

If you are looking for the World Wide Marriage Day Blog Hop, please go HERE.

I am the Guest Designer today over at TheBugBytes.  I made a Love Monster Banner to hang in my Home Daycare for Valentine's Day!  I had so much fun making these cute little monsters!!  I started out by turning on my Gypsy!

I found these lacy hearts from Sweethearts and sized them to 4.63w x 4.41h.  I could only fit 5 on my mat so I cut this page out twice on red cardstock.

I have seen a ton of doilies on Valentine's Day projects lately and decided to use a this doily from Art Philosophy sized at 2.97w x 2.88h.  Since I was cutting out 10 hearts, I cut out 10 doilies.

I cut the doilies out in white cardstock.

I found 5 cute monsters from Mini Monster and put them and all of their layers on my mat sized to 2 inches.  Once I sized the monsters to fit the doily, I ungrouped the layers and moved them around on my mat grouping them by color.

I grabbed a piece of paper from my Paper Layerz pad and cut out my monsters.

Here are my monster pieces!  Now to remember which pieces go where!!  I did not cut out the eyes or skinny mouths as I prefer to use stickles for those parts.

Here are my monsters all put together and stickled up!

While the stickles are drying, I crumpled up my doilies and inked them with Antique Linen to give them a distressed look.

I wanted to give my monsters a heart to hold on to, so I cut out some hearts from George and Basic Shapes sized to .5 inch and covered them with stickles.

I tied the hearts together with twine.

These guys are so cute ~ they make me smile!

I adhered the doilies to the hearts and pop dotted the monsters on.

My Love Monster Banner will look great in my daycare!!  Thank you for having me over to play today Pam!
