I found this jar of buttons today and it brought back memories of a fun day of crafting with my little friend Ky in Iowa. I dug into my photo archives and found the pictures from the day we created together using foam to create crafty aliens like the ones that I doodle for my licensing portfolio.
We cut up random pieces into arms, legs, eyes and bodies then used Aleene’s Tacky Glue to glue the pieces together. It was bunches of fun!
Ky made an adorable alien bracelet first. She added buttons from my Laura Kelly collection with Buttons Galore and More.
If you want to make aliens from foam (or colored paper), here is a fun printable with shapes that you can use for patterns to cut out the pieces. You can also click on the picture to get the PDF to print.
Have a FAR OUT fun time creating aliens of your own. Go all out and add some glitter, some colored glues and maybe even some Puffy Paint!
