The Pin Junkie: Alien Birthday Card

Wish someone an "out of this world birthday" with this fun alien birthday card.  Seriously, who wouldn't like to receive this friendly alien to wish them a happy birthday?  This card is super easy to make.  Don't worry about getting things perfect, aliens are supposed to look a little weird right?   I even used two different sizes of googly eyes, but they work!  Here's what you'll need to make your card:

yellow, blue, and black paper
paper punches
googly eyes
card stock

Using the stencil, trace two ovals onto the blue paper and cut out. 

 Cut one of the ovals in half.  Then punch out two small circles with a paper punch.

Use the full oval for the alien's head and the half oval for the alien's shoulders.  The two small circles are the tips of his antennas.  Use thin strips of paper to connect the antennas to the head and the head to the shoulders.  Glue everything in place on a piece of card stock.

 Next, punch out some stars and swirls . . .

. . . and glue them onto the card.  Glue on the googly eyes and a mouth and you're done!
