maker checklist

  • color cardstock (3-4 sheets)
  • marker/Sharpies
  • scissors
  • doubled sided stick foam tape

instructions

1

cut a square of color cardstock as the background for your artwork.

2

sketch a cloud shape (smaller than the background) on a different color cardstock. cut it out; outline it in black.

3

sketch and cut out a spiky shape (smaller than the cloud) from another color cardstock. outline this one too.

4

choose an exciting word and sketch it on a new piece of cardstock. ideas: you can make it wider than the background or (bonus points!) draw it so the letters overlap. cut it out, and outline it in black.

5

stack the four layers – background, cloud shape, splat shape, and the word. consider adding other fun shapes like clouds, stars, or lightning bolts.

tip!

a fun and simple pop is a layer of spikes coming out from behind one of your bigger shapes!

6

decorate one shape with polka dots! use dark markers or punch them with a hole punch, and glue them on the shape.
