STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Take a picture of your little guy (or girl) squatting down on a raised item. (We used a wooden crate.)
Crop the picture to a wallet size and have it printed on matte photo paper.
Cut your child out, trying to remove as much background as possible.
Make the cuts, matching the card stock up with the layer page.
Run the pieces through your sticker maker (all except for the polka dot and red rectangles).
Create your monkey: Layer the tan piece on the black piece on the brown piece.
Add the vine to the red rectangle, but only stick the ends.
Weave the monkey's tail around the vine and stick. Then weave your child's picture around the vine and stick.
Add the pink patterned heart to the monkey's hands.
Using a glue stick, glue the polka dot piece to the red piece. Layer the "Bananas 4 U" pieces on top of the polka dot.
