Tutorial: Paper Punch People, Part II

Tutorial: Paper Punch People, Part II

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.ย 
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.
Since it’s holiday season, how about a snowman head? Pieces have been edged very softly using distress inks and a felt pad, and the nose is a sliver of orange fun foam. This card rolls around since it has no feet….that can either be a game, or really annoying!
And here’s a little Christmas robin. Here you can see how to put the “feet” on both the front and back of the card so it stands up well when on display at home. Pieces are also edged using distress ink and a felt pad to give it a little more dimension.

Remember with these cards, they should be no larger than 4.25 x 5.5….you can add a “hat” to a snowman by attaching it to the back of the card, just be sure it still fits in an A2.
