spread joy card tiger with human teeth

I like to add teeth to things. Mainly because it elicits such a strong reaction from people, which I find amusing. When you add human teeth to a non-human object it’s immediately funny. Or gross. I think it’s funny, and hope these spread joy cards will make others laugh.

Supplies Used for Spread Joy Card with Teeth

Animal cards free printables

I chose some free use animal images from Unsplash, and made a collage to print on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. These will make 4 cards. You can find your own images to print, or save my picture to print.

make fake teeth

To make tiny teeth, place a white hot glue stick in your glue gun. Make tear drop shapes in various sizes on a silicone mat. Let them cool. When they are cool, cut a straight edge on one side and trim the tail off the tear drop. Now you have a tiny tooth!

Roll the animal printout through the Creative Station to add permanent adhesive to the back of it.

Cut the images apart, and adhere to the cardstock cards.

Roll the teeth through the Xyron Sticker Maker. No messy glue or long drying times anymore! Just peel and stick the teeth onto the spread joy card.

That’s it! I made some dots to use as eyes, which I think makes this seal extra hilarious.
