I love making unique note cards.  Even in today’s digital world, I find myself sending note cards as thank you cards, thinking of you cards and even birthday cards.  When I received Disney Pixar Monsters University for a feature on my site, all I could think of was how much fun it would be to make Monsters University crafts.  I had a tough time deciding which craft I would do but in the end decided to make a few fun note cards featuring different characters in Monsters University.

Monsters University released 10/29 on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy.  If you aren’t familiar with the film already, Mike and Sully head off to Monsters University to become scarers.  Everyone knows the best scarers come from Monsters University.Their competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the scare program and they realize that they are going to have to work together if they hope to fix things.  Monsters University deals with topics like self discovery, cheating, competition and working together.  It’s a movie that younger children will love just as much as Monsters, Inc. but also a movie that older kids will enjoy due to the university setting.  My 16 year old son loved the movie because the messages were something he could relate to.

Make Monsters University Cards

The Mike Wazowski and Art note cards I just drew by hand.  I’m far from an artist but I think they came out well enough to tell what they are.  I printed the Monsters University pledge card, and used that on the final card. If you like, you can draw that free hand.
