T-i-double guh-err

I have had polls and questions where I ask you which of the punch art characters were your favorites - many of you have a hard time deciding. 

Well, I don't have any problems deciding because THIS has to be MY favorite punch art creation EVER.

Do you want to see it?

The answer does not matter because I can't wait another minute to show this to you.

"The wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is Tiggers are wonderful things
Their tops are made out of rubber
Their bottoms are made out of springs
They're bouncy trouncy
Flouncy pouncy
Fun fun fun fun FUN
But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I'm the only one!"

This won't be the ONLY one, because at least half a dozen of you will fall in love with him and make him for yourselves!

Here is the how to:
body - large oval in barely banana (retiring in June) 2 large oval in Pumpkin pie
arms - word window
hands - wide heart from heart to heart - trim to get "thumb"
legs - butterfly punch trimmed as shown in photo below
feet - 3/4 inch circle trimmed
soles of feet - shortened word window in chocolate chip
tail - modern label (make little snips in with scissors)
bottom jaw - small oval trimmed in on one side (see photo below)
inside mouth - word window piece in bravo burgundy
muzzle - 3/4 inch circle
nose - new circle (available May 1 in punch pack) in pink
head - piece of 1.25 inch circle (see photo below)
eyes - piece of 3/4 inch circle
ears - pieces of 1/2 inch circle and new circle (available May 1 in punch pack)

I outlined most of the pieces in black and scribbled on the stripes  - drew on eyes and eyebrows.

Tigger is my favorite Hundred Acre Wood citizen!  Most of them make me grin, he makes me LAUGH!

Un.Believeable. You have totally outdone yourself! I had to show this to my husband (just the picture - nothing else) and the next thing I knew, he's in the kitchen singing "the wonderful thing about tiggers....". Thanks for such an amazing creation AND for the giggles this afternoon as my husband now has that song stuck in his head.

Oh, this is great!!! I love all the Pooh characters and can't wait to give them a try. I will use them on scrapbook pages for our grandson who is nicknamed "Little Bear", but he is as cuddly as Pooh.
