Body Building (tutorial for butterfly babes)

Tuesday I posted these hot babes made from the butterfly punch and you gals went NUTS over them, so I've created a pictoral "how to". 

I think these pictures are self explanatory but I'll chatter a bit anyway because, well, that is what I do.

These are the punches you will need for each body. 

These are the punches you will need for the different hair-dos.  I know the key tag punch is retired but you can get a very similar effect by cutting a rectangle with your trimmer and using the corner rounder.

Now you have to alter some of the punches for the body as shown here:

In order, you have sunglasses, cleavage, ankles, knees, shoes.  TIP:  cut the shoe piece in half and lay them on top of each other to make your final cuts so they will "match".

Now you can see the basic assembly for the body adding the face, neck, suit, and arms to the pieces you just prepared.  (kinda scary looking right now, huh? It makes me think of a horror movie with mannequins! Creepy.)

You need to take some stampin' pastels and define her cheeks, cleavage, knees, and the inside of her elbows.

Attach the pieces and you have a beautiful bald butterfly blog babe! (Say THAT three times fast)

I'm guessing you'd like to add hair.  So here are three options.  

Blond - her face is on a dimensional as are her bangs since her hair is poofy and curly


Brunette - just some snips with your scissors for her do

Redhead - use the 1 inch circle to punch out a piece from her hair (toss what you punch - keep the top part) Use scissors to trim her bangs - I sponged a little rust on the bangs to define them.

Choose your hairdo and you are good to go!

You did notice the change in my avatar, didn't you? Of course I had to have a slimming black suit accented with red trim!  (Age and gravity keep me from going strapless - so slot punch straps)

And yes, I do have a pair of red reading glasses in my collection. (Just a little bigger than the sunglasses with a standard hole punch for my lenses)

Hope you enjoy these hot babes!  Give your babe a tan or change her race with your choice of papers. I can see adding a long skirt for a pageant gown - and a tiara - oh I know you will come up with some clever things and I'd love to see your creations.
