Chins part 3 - Pilgrim Man (by request)

So far, our chin men have included a Hobo, Conan and a Leprechaun from the same basic pointy face and body. 

Today I am changing the body a little bit to meet a reader's request.  Beth Saremba asked me if I would do a full pilgrim man (the mouse in the hat wasn't what she needed) so, ever desperate to please - I did.

his body is the 1 3/4 circle
his thighs are the small oval punch
his calves are the word window in white
his shoes are half a butterfly trimmed just a tiny bit.
his hat brim looks like a word window but it is actually longer
  • To make the longer hat brim - cut a strip 3/8 inch wide with your paper trimmer - insert just the end into the word window (feed from the punch opening into the slit) -  round one end ,then do it again to round the other end. 
his buckle on hat and shoes is just like the chain link found here
his collar,cuffs, and top of his hat are all freehand

Beth, I hope this helps you out.

good morning! Love your little pilgrim this morning, perfect for a Thanksgiving day layout. You have inspired me, although my Thanksgiving day dinner might not be too inspiring with this
weight management system we have going on here at our house, lol. I will scrapbook it though, just so I can use your pilgrim. Hugs,

Beautiful work. I am inspired by your work. I think a Pilgrim woman and Indian would be fun too!

I love to visit everyday to see what awsome punch art you have created! Great work!! I just wish I was as creative as you.
I have been trying for weeks to make a frankenstein and I can't get him put together. LOL!!

So cute Ellen - loving all your punch ideas. Will continue to stop by and check them out girl! Oh, love your kitty on your sidebar. CUTE - reminds me of my Baby Cash (she's big and furry like that).
