We created monsters using two supplies, googly eyes and bread clips. Can you tell I like to do recycled projects?  We then turned these cute monsters into Halloween cards.  Keep scrolling to find out the process and see the finished cards. Also links to the other members of the Get Kids Crafty team will be listed below. 

We took two simple things and make something super cute and fun!

Riley started by adding liquid glue for the monsters google eyes.

Then he added the googly eyes some of our monsters had two eyes and some had only one. 
Waiting for our new friends to dry.  We’ve got quite the crew here. 

Next Riley used Memento tuxedo black ink to stamp the sentiment “Boo from the crew”.  He stamped on white card stock from the Micheal's Recollections collection.  The stamp is one I picked up awhile back from the Micheal's $1.50 stamp bin. 

We did this project over three days. So on this day Riley got to use the Big Shot machine to cut some rectangles from MY Favorite Things Rectangle STAX Set 1 . We cut four rectangles in total.

Next Riley took those four rectangles he cut earlier and he did some water coloring on the pieces. He used a basic kids water color palette.

Then I used the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider to adhere the watercolor piece to a card base to create a cute Halloween card.  We then used the Xyron sticker maker for the sentiment which we cut apart so that Riley could add the sentiment on all by himself along the bottom of the card. 

After that Riley added glue to the watercolors area so we could add our monsters. 

Then it was time for Riley to add the monsters and finish up our cards. 

Here is the finished project!
