Trick or Treat Characters
How stinking cute are these guys?
I have seen variations of these little guys all over the net and thought they would be so fun with the kiddies for their Halloween bags - cause they can eat the legs but still have the body as finger puppets cause I left a hole between the front layer and back layer of the characters and well not to be totally selfish in my Trick or Treating but I stamped my contract info on the back of the puppets should any parents out there want to learn more about paper crafting and Stampin' Up as well as there is room for a business card for my home childcare should any be looking for childcare - so win win ;)
So we have Jack, Mummy and Frank here ...
Meet Jack ... he features the Top Note die in Pumpkin Pie which I scored using our new scoring tool and than folded to give a 3D effect by sponging the creases with Pumpkin ink. I used the Pennant builder punch to quickly punch my triangles as well as to create his smile. The Two Step Bird punch made great vines on the top with some scraps of Green glitter paper from my non-stamping stash ... sure how they keep adding new colors to our line cause I love our quality better ;)
Jack's legs are created with our new cellophane bags from the Holiday mini and were stuffed with some Jelly Belly black and orange beans - yummy!
Meet Mummy ... looking dapper in Very Vanilla which was torn to create his bandages look and sponged with some Soft Suede ink to give him that worn look ... eyes and a dazzling detail smile create the look. His cellophane legs are stuffed with some purple candy corn - which for some reason decided to be a little challenging going in - not sure if it is the triangle shape or what - so while Mummy was quick to put together his legs were a bit of a pita so only a few of him were created!
Meet Frank ... unlike Dr Frankenstein's experience Frank was actually the quickest and easiest to make so there are more of his friends in the treat collection ;)
Frank features one Always Artichoke Top Note and one Basic Black Top Note which was cut in half width wise and used to create his hair and the back panel of the finger puppet and hide the leg attachment!
Now just punch some eyes and lids with the circle punch add a little Always Artichoke sponging and draw a smile and a scar and put some Twizzlers in a cellophane bag for legs which slide in nice and easy and Frank is good to go!!
