Make your own Printable Despicable Me Minions. This easy and fun toilet paper craft is a fun addition to a Despicable Me party or gift for anyone needing a "little help" around the house.
Today is my Birthday!
While it's really not that big of a deal, it does give me a day to ponder about what it is that I really want out of life. Am I doing everything to make Momma proud? Am I on track to where I want to be in another 10 years? Have a grown any in the past year?
I have decided that I'm not quite up to where I should be, and I think that's just because there just isn't enough hours in the day. There's not enough time to work, play, clean house, be a good neighbor, spend time with my kids, and so on. And I decided, I need some Minions for my birthday this year to help me get it all done.
Have you seen Despicable Me 2 ? I hadn't seen it until this past week. When I spent New Years with my little nephew, I was able to see it FOUR times in a very short period of time. (Can I tell you how grateful I am that cartoon makers finally make those movies fun for both adults and kids? And what is it with kids wanting to watch the same show OVER and OVER and OVER?)
I was really impressed with how good a dad Grue was, but how nice it must have been to have Minions to clean the house and work on the "jam" while he spent time with the kids. I definitely needed that.
But since I am not a mad scientist, I decided to put my mad computer skills to work and create a few Minions of my own for my birthday.
I started by creating 6 printables sheets of 2 Minions. I sized them to fit around an old toilet paper roll, so I needed a few of those too. Then I grabbed my favorite Fiskars Paper Trimmer (do you have one of these? Favorite. Tool. Ever.) and my handy dandy glue gun.
I cut out each of the 12 Minions and rolled them around the toilet paper roll. I like to put a little bit of glue on the very edge of the paper so that it doesn't have any card stock sticking up on the edge. But you can use tape too, if that's easier. (Minions are supposed to make things easier after all!)
That's all there is too it! Now I have a dozen sweet printable Minions to help me make my birthday amazing!
If you need a Minion or two today, here's a free pair to help you too! You can simply right click on the jpg picture and save it to your computer. If you would like the whole set, you can find the Printable Minions in our shop.

Happy Birthday! My kids and I really like Despicable Me 2 also. Thank goodness they make these movies funny for adults because like you I "get to see it" all.the.time! I'll be pinning this and making these with my kids today--thanks for giving us a fun project to do!ReplyDelete

çok güzel bir projeReplyDelete
This is so perfect for us right now. I have a giant bag of old toilet paper rolls that were left over from making reindeer etc. at X-mas and my son now wants to make toilet paper roll -everything! Great idea. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny the things our kids get "stuck" on doing? When we made our Christmas window clings, we had all kinds of clings all over the house for weeks. I'm finding clings of iPods and music notes all over the boys' bathroom. I am glad they are learning to craft and use their artistic sides though. I hope your son enjoys our Minions!Delete
