Book Monsters

My son was chosen to be the star student a few weeks back at school.  At the end of their special week, the honored student gets to bring in a treat of some sort to the class.  They do not let you bring in homemade food like cookies and cupcakes, you have to buy store made items.  I do not buy those type of things from the store because I think that they are way overpriced for what I can do from scratch at home and they do not taste near as well.  So we always make something to give as a gift, usually school or learning oriented.  This year my son chose to make “book monsters” for his classmates.   These are little bookmarks that have little monster faces poking out at you when you put it in a book.  bookmonsterThese were so simple to make that Spencer who is 6 did them almost all by himself thanks to the Big Shot.  They were made out of fun foam sheets and googlie eyes with minimal stamping.  All I did was cut the sheets of fun foam into pieces that were 2 by 4 1/2, and he did the rest.  Some of them Spencer drew a nose on and others  he stamped a mouth.  I think that this would be a fun little gift to sit down with your kids and make as a Halloween gift for their friends.  Hope you enjoy and get to stamp with someone you love!
