finished cardI've been trying to think of a way to use up a few of those bread tabs I keep saving. Well I decided to make a card for my little boy. It brought a big smile to his face and he loved it, so I was happy! :) This is very easy and inexpensive to make!

Total Time: Half hour

Yield: 1 card

Supplies:

  • 1 8 1/2" by 11" piece of cardstock paper
  • scraps of accent color paper
  • 5 bread tabs
  • ruler
  • pen
  • Sharpie marker
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • google eyes
  • letter stencil
Supplies for making the Monster card.
 

Steps:

  1. Fold your large piece of card stock in half.
  2. A folded piece of paper.
     
  3. Using your ruler, make a line on the corner so that you can cut a triangle.
  4. Using a ruler to draw a straight line.
     
  5. Make 2. Mine are 5 1/2" long at widest point, 2 1/2" tall.
  6. Two paper triangles.

  7. Glue your first triangle at the top of your card. I actually used a glue gun for this. This may be a no-no for the real scrap-bookers, but it worked fine for this. Glue the second triangle directly below.
  8. Two paper triangles glued to the front of the folded paper card.
     
  9. Hot glue a big google eye on your first bread tab.
  10. A googly eye and bread tie decoration.
     
  11. Glue it to your card.
  12. A googly eye monster on the front of a card.
     
  13. Here's the second.

  21. Now I used a cheap stencil ruler from the dollar store to make the words. They look cute if you angle them different directions.

  23. I also decided to draw over every other letter with a silver Sharpie. It matched the triangles nicely.
