Yeah, I know his nose is too large but I'd rather have this shape and too large than small and round. Feel free to find something better and tell me what to try.
Here is a big punch art secret (shh..... don't tell EVERYONE!) When you can't or don't want to punch the "bottom" half of a character - just have them poking out of a circle. I figured that out way back when I tried Cookie Monster.
I cut this circle with my circle scissor plus. I didn't like this tool at first. I couldn't get a perfect circle. Of course, I wasn't doing it correctly. The key is to use plenty of Dotto - temporary adhesive. and then stop cleaning your glass mat so thoroughly. Let the glass get "seasoned" with the adhesive and use the adhesive and when your paper stays in place your circles come out p-e-r-f-e-c-t! The red base of the card is showing, the brilliant blue is one hole and the turquoise is a ring on the blue. See, I really did conquer the circle scissor plus!
Head - 1.25 circle, 1/2 a butterfly
Nose - wing from NEW Two Step Bird (I think I call the wing a leaf in some of my past directions, sorry)
Ear - small Heart to Heart
Eye - standard hole punch
Winking eye - the throw away part from the NEW scallop border punch - kinda tucked behind the nose
Eyebrow - part of the scallop from the NEW scallop border (yes, I am brilliant sometimes)
Mouth - part of the same punch as eyebrows
Hat - piece of modern label re-punched to make shorter and a 3/4 inch circle
Neck - My Way arrow
Shirt - large oval snipped with my way arrow to get V neck, standard hole punch buttons
Sleeves - small oval HOLE punched with large oval to get thin ring and slot punch
Arm - My Way arrow
Forearm - 1 inch circle
Hand - 3/4 inch circle, trimmed, fingers drawn
Pipe - 1/2 inch circle trimmed straight on sides, slot punch cut in half
Spinach can - 1.25 circle cut straight on sides and re-punched to round in the top
Spinach - leaves from branch of NEW Two Step Bird
Jeez, that was a little complex huh? You should have been here with me trying to figure him out! I googled his image and this is a conglomeration of some of them - was thrilled when I saw one in a circle reminding me of that old trick - I was struggling with his legs.
So it was a little hard but if you ever HAVE to have the muscle bound Popeye the Sailor Man on a project - you know how to get him!
Shall I try Olive Oyl? Maybe I will, they'd be great on a Valentine together!
