This is a sponsored post. However, the ideas and opinions are 100% my own.
My children and I LOVED Monster University. My husband and son were camping when it came to theaters, so my daughters and I had a girl’s night out. We stocked up on Red Vines and buttery popcorn and went to see Monster University; we laughed until our sides hurt.
I am excited to share a tutorial with you on how to make a Monsters University Student ID Photo Booth Prop. This would be great for a Monsters themed birthday party or for your upcoming Halloween party. The kids will love this!
-Foam Core Poster Board
-Straight Edge Ruler
-Blue Paint/Foam Brush
-Digital Craft Cutter and Vinyl (or create freezer paper stencils like this)
Step #1: With a pencil, draw a straight line across your foam core board poster board five inches from the bottom.
Step #2: Create a 12” x 12” square about 5 inches in from the right side of your board and 2 inches up from the bottom. (You do not have to be this exact; I realize not everyone is as OCD as me. ) Next, create another square just 1/4” smaller than the 12” squared one.
Step #3: Using the utility knife, carefully cut out the inner square. I cut the board on my self-healing cutting mat which I typically use for cutting fabric. (Give the inner square piece to your children and watch them try to throw it like a Frisbee around the house.)
Step #4: Paint the bottom part and around the square with “Monster University” blue. Outline with a thick black marker to hide the fact that maybe you can’t paint the straightest of lines.
Step #5: Create the “STUDENT” letters with your digital vinyl cutter, large stickers, or the freezer paper stencil method I mentioned above. You can even free hand it or have a child paint it for a more personal touch. I also created the university insignia and “Monsters University” using the ‘trace tool’ in my digital craft cutting program. You can print these out using the sample ID card I found on Disney Studios Pinterest page here, then trace the images and cut to create a stencil or just glue the printed images right on.
Step #6: Hang a black table cloth as a photo backdrop and take pictures of your guests. I think it would be fun to print them out as labels for cups, treats, etc. at a party!
