I hope 2010 is a wonderful joyous year for you.
May you you find everything you need and a few of the things you want.
May the sun shine bright for you, unless you really like snow and then I hope flakes fill your life.
I realize that unless you are scrapbooking a New Year event this comes a little late for you to use. However, you might save the idea for next year or you might need to make a baby without the hat and banner so here is a tutorial. (See me trying to start the year as a helpful blogger?)
You need these punches:
Blush blossom:two 1.25 circle punches
two medium hearts from Heart to Heart
one large heart from Heart to Heart
two small hearts from Heart to Heart
one standard hole punch
White:one Small Heart (new, available Jan 5)
scrap with large oval punched on the edge
Black:two standard hole punch
Chocolate Chip (or other hair color):scrap with standard hole punched from the corner
Insert the two medium (wide) hearts into a 1/2 inch circle punch - this is making the legs/feet
Punch the 1/2 inch circle punch around the hole in the chocolate chip paper to get a curl - turn you punch over and look at what you are punching
Punch a 1 3/8 circle punch over the oval hole in the white scrap to get a moon shape
Cut the large narrow heart in half as show below...
Take the white moon shaped diaper and slip it into a circle punch just a tiny bit to punch two leg openings
The punch pieces shown below are what you will need for assembly...
Here is a RARE photo - I am letting you see the back of one of my creations - so you can see the assembly - very easy but looks messy since I ran out of mini glue dots and used another type from my stash. Can't wait until my order gets here with a HUGE supply of mini glue dots!
Add pen/marker mouth and navel
If you need the hat directions:
start with a scrap of black shaped like this, a small oval hole in blue paper and a large black oval.
Slip the wide end of your black scrap into an oval punch (insert from the center of the punch - just putting one edge in) to round the top of your hat,
Punch an oval offset from your hole to get a blue curved strip
Below you see the hat forming
snip off the excess hat band
Add some highlights if you want and you have a new years baby
If you want the banner I showed at the top of this entry - it is cut freehand - sorry, SU only gives me a certain number of punches to work with.
I'm trying for Helpful Teacher not Miracle Worker....
I think he is pretty cute and I hope you can find a way to use him.
