Little Monsters

I hope that you are having fun making Baby Shower cards/projects for My Grafico Challenge.
Baby Shower is still the theme of our challenge this week. So click HERE when you are ready to enter.
This week we have another amazing file to show you...Little Monsters. These files are SVG files. If you have a machine that will cut them for you, you are so fortunate. However; you can print and cut them yourself. It just takes a little longer.

These adorable monsters reminded me of Halloween, so I made a Memory Matching Game using most of the images. It was so easy, just run off two copies of each image you want to use, cut them out in a rectangle, then back them with another cardstock. You can also play this game as "Old Maid"..."Lost Monster" by randomly picking one card to leave out of the deck. Then no one will know who the Lonely Monster is until s/he is holding the last card :) I ran the little monsters off on white cardstock then used a spray fixative to glue them to the cardstock.  (No coloring necessary!)

Here is the game, first showing all the pieces I chose.
Here I have assembled some of the cards to play the game with. If you are playing with pre school children, you may want to begin with only 6 pairs.

Materials Used:
White Cardstock: Georgia-Pacific,( Wal Mart)
Orange Cardstock: Michael's
My Grafico File: Little Monsters
Spray Fixative designed for paper
