Early morning in this photo and it was time to send out this batch of cards now that the glitter has dried overnight and start to assemble the project that Jim and I were making for everyone who lives in his group home and the staff, in addtion to a few others. We made a total of 18 of these little guys - took 2 days into late evenings. Jim did most all of the paper punching of the different shapes, thank goodness, and I put them together.
I wanted to do a tutorial but ran out of time - so I thought I would still share some of the photos with you as they are pretty self explanatory. If you have any questions please do contact me and I would be happy to help. Many of the punches I used were SU with other miscellaneous punches. I drew the pattern for the pants and used ideas from other bloggers in addition to my own to complete my little elf. A huge thank you to everyone who's ideas I used! I looked at so many videos and blog postings that I am sorry to say that I can't give individual credit.
