Goofy and cute, right? This is a fun little treat is a great one to make for kids and to leave on their bedroom door as a surprise. I mean, how fun will it be when one of them opens the door and finds one of these on it? It didn't take a whole lot of supplies to make it: some GCD papers; a couple Pixy Stix candies; a circle punch; cardstock; a pen and and a few assorted embellishments.
I made the sun by cut triangles and a circle from patterned and piecing them together and then mounting them on cardstock. I made the cloud by free-hand cutting a cloud from patterned paper. Don't worry if your cloud doesn't look too hot when you cut it. My didn't either. ;) Once you mount it to cardstock, it will look just fine. The sun and cloud sit just right at the end of the candies.
I used just a little bit of adhesive to make them stick. I recommend using something like Glue Dot rather than liquid glue for this.
To make the hanger to put them in, I just cut a large piece of paper and used a circle punch to cut a circle out of the top of it. Then I used a couple smaller pieces of paper to make a pocket to place on the front. Remember: Put adhesive on three sides of those papers (the left and right sides and the bottom). Don't go all the way or you won't be able to use it as a pocket. Finish things off by tying some ribbon or twine around the bottom of the hanger and spelling out your child's name with letter stickers or die-cuts.
