I have made these before but they are worth revisiting now that I have a blog and a kindergartner.
These are super easy to make...you could even make the components ahead and do it as a class project.
First we are going to (literally) dust off some punches...yep...we are going to use that corner punch that you had to buy 15 years ago when you first started scrappin'. We will also use a small scallop punch and one just a wee bit bigger and some pretty paper. I am using Blackbird from MME.
I start by punching out all the components, then we will put it all together, assembly line style!
I also ink the edges...I am just like that...you don't have to be as psychotic.
I made 6 legs for each spider...yes, I am aware that they actually have 8 legs however, the other two legs looked like they were coming out of the top of the spider's head. SO...6 it is!
For the eyes...I like glow in the dark...you can use whatever you want. I also didn't want them all matchy-matchy so some of my spiders have 1 eye, some have 2, some have 3, some have different sizes for eyes...again, up to you. If it bothers you, make them all the same.
After all the spiders are assembled, adhere them to your sucker. I used pop dots because my suckers were lumpy and I like the relief the pop dot gives the sucker.
Also...the kids can take the spider off the front super easy.
ETA: We gotta man down...I have to fix the leg on the li'l guy on the right...so sad. Carry On.
