How to make your very own Scary Stense greetings card

Some simple fun for all the family…

Scary Stense card
Here's one I made earlier.

You will need:

  • one 7"x5" print of this photograph (hi-res version here)
  • one piece of A4 card
  • two stick-on wobbly eyes (available in most good craft shops)
  • one Pritt Stick™ or similar paper glue
  • one tube of superglue or similar
  • one pair of tweezers


  • fold card neatly in half
  • glue photograph to centre of folded card (with fold at top) using Pritt Stick™
  • holding stick-on eye with tweezers, place a small blob of superglue on the back of the eye and carefully stick it over the left-eye on the photograph
  • repeat with right-eye
  • et voila!

Stense professed herself delighted with the card I sent her. Well, that wasn't the exact word she used, but I knew what she meant.

  1. That's a great idea. In addition, if you look very closely at the photo, you will see the number 41 on the seat just behind Stense. This means it would make an ideal 41st birthday card. I just wish I'd realised this before my 41st birthday earlier this month.

  2. My wife had a very similar expression the other night when I lost my way in the dark!
