How to Make DIY Monster Valentine Candy Cards
Open up Cricut Design Space and the free Monster Candy Card SVG. Place your cardstock on the standard grip mat and load it into the machine when prompted. Select the correct material and press the flashing button to start the cutting. Remove the pieces from the mat with the Cricut spatula tool.
Once all the pieces have been cut it’s time to start putting your Monster Card together. Start by gluing the colored red and blue cardstock pieces to the white piece.
Once you have glued the bodies together fold the monster arms on the score lines.
Glue the heart-shaped belly onto the monster.
Finally, glue the eyes and antennas onto the monster. Use the black fine tip pen to trace over the mouth to give it added dimension.
Place a glue dot on the back of a mini Twix candy bar and place it in the middle of the Monster Valentine Card. Wrap the arms around the candy and secure to keep the sweet treasure in place.
Use your Cricut and the red fine tip pen to create a handmade card that says “Have a Monstrously Fun Valentine’s Day!”
