Boo to you from our crew - Peek A Boo Frankie & Ghost Cards

Thanks to blog hops I saw these two cute cards I had to make for the boys.  Of course they are more time consuming and when you now go to public our class size for each boy has grown like crazy.  

First off I made the Peek A Boo Frankie found on Crafty Journal.  It was a simple card to make, she used foam.  I decided on card stock since I could make the template and then copy onto the card stock using my printer/copier.  I'm all about the easiest way when doing a mass production of something. Both cases she showed a picture of her template but not the actual template.  So I copied her picture put it into a word doc and then scaled it, made a copy and then took a blank piece of paper to make a template with out the dimensions so it could easily printed onto the cardstock.  Here is where my Templates are stored let me know if it gives you grief.

What you Need:
Black Card Stock
Green Card Stock
White Sharpie or Pencil
3/4 Inch Brad
Wiggly Eyes
Paper Punch

I printed the tombs first onto the black, then the heads onto green.  I cut each of them out. For the head I cut some hair out of black paper. Added the eyes, drew a crazy mouth, some bolts on the side of the head and the stitches to the neck.  You can get creative her with scar's etc.  I found I bought the Medium Brad which fell threw the hole when I tried to use the hole punch!  Be careful when you are buying to make sure they are big enough to hold the 3 pieces together.

Then I made the Peek A Boo Ghost found also on Crafty Journal. Another simple card that she used foam, but I made with card stock to make it easy to print template onto the paper to help with time.  Forgive me the pumpkin template has the writing on it, due to the clean version my oldest decided to color on before I could scan it, but the rest is done for you, here in my Templates.

What you Need:
Orange Card Stock
White Card Stock
Brown Card Stock
Black Sharpie
3/4 inch Brad
Paper Punch
Wiggly Eyes (optional - Caden Vito them .. lol)

I printed the stems onto brown paper, the ghost on white an the pumpkins on orange.  I cute each of them out.  Since my template I used had the Ghost eyes and mouth they were all set nothing more to do.  The pumpkins I did take a brown colored pencil to add some shading for the grooves in a pumpkin.  AGAIN be careful when buying the the brad, I bought a medium that fell threw my hole punch hole, had to make a small hole then insert!  I punched a hole in the 3 and added a bronze brad to blend with the orange.  I glued the stem on to the right side and let the overhang go behind when the left closes up.

They are super cute, a little time consuming but so worth it to hopefully brighten a kids day :).
