The Love Monster

Yes, I realize we haven’t even had Christmas yet and that you are not ready for Valentine’s Day, but I had so much fun making this little guy, I couldn’t wait to share him.

Meet The Love Monster!

The Love Monster began life as a Color Blank from Rose Art. Technically, it is a new “toy” that comes with markers and stickers to decorate as you please. They cost about $4.99 and are available in a variety of shapes at most major retailers. Visit http://www.colorblanks.com/ for details.

So, I turned this little guy into the Love Monster by painting him with a Ranger Paint Dabber and then adding stickers for the eyes and drawing on the mouth.

Then, I used the brand new Bo Bunny Crush line to accent him.

Using a QuicKutz butterfly die, I cut out the wings. I chopped off the butterfly head and used a Micro Glue Dot to attach it to the top of the Love Monster. Then, I used the Continuous Line Glue Dots, cut to size, to attach the wings on the back of the monster. The heart was cut out of the paper and attached with another Micro Glue Dot.

For the nose, I used Micro Glue Dots and covered them in Sparkly Fluff by Our Craft Lounge.

Finally, I rolled a bit of paper (you could write a message on it) and used a Removeable Glue Dot to hold it in place. Then, I tied a bit of fiber by May Arts around it and tucked it in the monster’s hand.

Cute and simple. Just my style!
