Hi everyone! It's Sandy here again with more paper punch people ideas. I know I promised the frog tutorial a long while back when I created the first paper punch people tutorial with Elmo and friends, so I'm providing that plus a few other ideas. I'd love to see what you come up with too!
|Today's card - with large eyes|
|Card from the previous tutorial - using smaller eyes (smaller punches/nesties) |
We heard that our heroes were actually arguing over who got to use this one!
|Fold cardstock in half and use largest circle nestability to cut the card base. |
Might run it through twice depending on the thickness of your cardstock.
|Punch two large circles for eyes, one green large circle and cut in half for eyelids.|
You'll need a medium black circle for each eye, and use a large holepunch for the highlight on the eye.
Punch two ovals for knees, and two hearts for feet.
|Use grid paper or a desktop mat like this to help align the knees and feet evenly.|
|Here's the inside; I added a white circle on top of this to cover the messiness as well as to secure the knees and feet so they don't fall off with handling. This is a kids card, it's likely to get handled a lot!|
|Assemble eyes, using tape runner for big pieces, and I used quick dry gue for the teeny dots.|
|Mouths can be created different ways - partial circles, or cut a circle portion out of a circle.|
The cut off portion was used on the first frog card at the top, the inside portion was used on the card below.
|Another froggie with a bigger mouth and no eyelids. Much cheerier, don't you think! Darker paper too.|
