My grandson wanted some "Monster Truck Valentines" to pass out to his classmates at his preschool. Of course, no monster truck valentines were to be found..... So, I made him some :-) I found this wonderful side view image of a monster truck online.....I looked through some of the images of my grandson that I have on my computer and found one that with a smidge of fixin' I could use. The photo on the left is the before photo. On the right is the photo in which I filled in some areas with more skin and more of his red shirt.Then I simply printed a copy of the new altered photo, cut it out, and glued it so it appeared that my grandson was leaning out the Monster truck window. Easy peasy! Once the main image was complete, I copied three per sheet onto some cardstock. I wanted the truck bed to be able to hold a small valentine coin, so once all the monster truck images were individually cut out....I made a slit in each truck bed with an x-acto blade to make it possible to tuck a valentine coin into each one. I carefully glued each truck again (keeping in mind that the truck bed had to have a open pocket) to yet another sheet of cardstock which had a red/white polka-dot paper adhered to the back of.... Again, I cut each truck out..... whew. Once the 20 monster truck valentines were cut out...twice, I made a heart stencil to create a glittered heart that my grandson would have in his hand on each valentine. I just dabbed glue inside the stencil and added fine red glitter to each one. Nothing to it :-)I also made 20 lady-bug lollipop/finger puppets :-)He is so sweet... he loves it when I make him things. He informed me that he wants me to "make" him his birthday present (whatever that is) and he wants his mom to "make" him his birthday cake. Such cuteness~
