Aren't they fun? Look at the cute little hiney! I think these are great for kids and adults! How about making your co-workers day? Or giving a friend a laugh? Kids will love these! And I guarantee if I was still teaching, I would be making about 28 of these for my kids.
You can get Boy Monster Hugs and Girl Monster Hugs at Stampin' Up. They are really cool just the way they are - but I started thinking.... And came up with a little flag to add to the fun.
Here's what you do:
Download the sentiment sheet below. Print onto kraft (or color of your choice. I went with kraft to match their hands and feet.) Then cut into flags. They can be cut to work on the left or right of the monsters. Score to make it easier to wrap around a toothpick.
Tip: Cut off the tip of the toothpick to make it less pointy - less likely to poke someone that way.
For a little extra pizzazz: use a white Signo pen to add dashes around the flag. (Don't have a Signo pen? If you would like one at a great price, we have them in our store. Just email me.)
I used one glue dot and a little additional bit of liquid glue to hold the flag in place. The end of the toothpick is right under the nuggets and doesn't seem to bother them in the least.
Your little monsters can hold one nugget or two. There is a sticker built in to hold it in place. It seems sticky enough, but I like redundancy. I added a couple of glue dots to the back of the nuggets.
Their arms have little slits so the monsters can hug the nuggets until someone special is ready for a sweet treat.
With each set of monster hugs you get: 18 monsters, 24 googly eyes, and 24 heart stickers. These are lovely quality and even the stickers are sturdy. They are only available for a limited time.
