The other night, I decided, I wanted to try a new project I'd seen on pinterest; monster bookmarks. I thought, we could sit down, play some Christmas music and make some gifts. What I saw as simple project, my husband took to another level, bringing out the watercolors, and felt eyebrows, to turn a few simple steps into a marathon evening of monster making. Honestly it was a blast. We watched "the Grinch" and "Santa Clause." We ended up making something like 15 monsters in a little under 7 hours. By the end our backs ached and our eyes were strained, but we were gleefully satisfied at the outcome. We gave them out at our Secret Santa exchange before we indulged in S'mores.
To make these monster bookmarks follow the instructions on this site
We added some of our own features, painting the teeth to give the appearance of rotting and blood and adding fury eyebrows. Kyle even made some that weren't monsters with cool artwork found in magazines.
