How to make a funny card "Monster"

Funny Monster Card

Original greeting cards (or invitation cards) are always popular and in demand. By itself, such a postcard is already a mini gift. In addition, I know from my own experience that original greeting cards are stored for a very long time (which can not be said about ordinary). And if something is kept, it means that memories of this are preserved. Today we offer you to make an amazing and funny postcard-monster, which will shout (or snarl) your congratulations.

You will need:

  • color paper (the color is at your discretion, but we would advise you to use different shades of green - monsters are exactly this color);
  • Printer;
  • stationery knife;
  • scissors;
  • ruler (preferably metal);
  • black marker;
  • thin double-sided adhesive tape (or glue).

Instructions

1. Develop a congratulation design. When developing, use any graphic (or text) editor and first draw an equilateral (preferably) equilateral square. Note that the height (width) of this square divided by 2 should not exceed the width of your postcard. We would recommend making it even smaller (about 1-2 see). Then center the text. It is desirable that the text was small (otherwise it will not be very convenient to read the birthday person).

2. Print a greeting on white paper and cut out the congratulation on the outline. Then use it as a template and from the colored paper cut out a similarly sized square. Glue these two squares together. To do this, you can use glue (or double-sided tape, as in the example).

12. Position your monster's mouth inside so that the sharp corner of the workpiece coincides with the center line of the folding of the cover. Then remove the protective coating of double-sided tape on the jaw workpiece and glue it to both sides of the cover.

14. It remains to add a few decorative elements to your discretion (eyes, nose or something else). For example, for the eyes, it is enough to cut out two circles (oval) from white paper and glue them in the necessary places. And then draw a pupil with a black marker. Experiment and you will receive an original greeting card.
