You Blow My Mind Creeper Valentine!

Featured
Picture of You Blow My Mind Creeper Valentine!
My children are obsessed with Mine Craft and they really wanted a Creeper. So of course I thought instead of hearts and the everyday valentine, what if I made a creeper valentine full of surprises! If you are a Mine Craft follower you know that they explode all over you so I thought it would be cute to have a body full of candy, legs full of candy and it wouldn't be quite complete with out some sort of exploding factor. Well sort of, I filled the head with those pop-its you get on the fourth of July. You know the ones you throw down on any hard surface and they pop. So this is how to construct this tasty exploding Creeper. Also since it is filled with candy, when you shake it, it makes a sound similar to that of a creeper approaching you in the game getting ready to explode!

First find a template that you like and print off a small version and a larger version. Here is a link to the template that I used,  http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_dkwsMlgesaU/TMat2jDxbHI/AAAAAAAAAGI/eD3QfDBTUDU/s1600/box_square.gif I just copied it into word and for the head I made it as big a one sheet of paper and for the legs I just left it its original size. Then I cut it out and then traced it onto the poster board. You will need to trace it four times for the four legs and then trace the larger head one just once. Then cut them out ( this is longest part of this whole project) and fold where it says to fold and start taping or gluing your box together. Leave the top open.

I am so glad everyone likes the creeper. I made it while my daughter was at school and when she came home and saw it she was so excited. They were jumping around and shaking it at each other saying it was going to blow up. Then they got to open it and find all the surprises. I was a hero for a day!

These really do "BLOW MY MIND" with AWESOMENESS!!! I especially like the added sound effects. 1 suggestion: maybe add a link to the template you used for your boxes, so mine can turn out as nice :)

I have now edited my instructable and added a link to the template under the " making your paper boxes" section. Thanks for the tip!
You should enter it into the MAKE IT REAL contest too. I'm sure it would qualify.
