I've done Garfield, Felix, and Pink Panther but a request from Marisol of A Touch of Sol asking if I had ever done anything from Dr. Seuss led to this...
His face isn't exactly right, I didn't include his ear or mouth - but I was given some advice to "keep it simple and clean and don't drive yourself crazy" so... he is what he is.
And since I think you will like him even with his flaws, I prepared some "how to" photos.
1 inch circle
heart to heart
circle from itty bitty punch pack (If you don't have this yet -you can use the tip of the word window)
Hat and Bow-tie first:
Neck is half of a word window (sponge with gray ink)
Bow tie is two narrow Heart to Hearts, one small Heart to Heart and the circle from the itty bitty punch pack
I recommend outlining each of these pieces with a black marker
Hat brim is a small oval punched next to a small oval hole (outline in black)
Support pieces to assemble hat - 2 word windows (can be any color)
Hat parts are three red and two white -1 inch circle punches - trim "flattish" on each side - in the photo below I show one of these on a green circle so you can see what I mean - the cuts don't need to be perfectly straight, even or exactly parallel - just relax and cut. (outline in black)
One Large oval and one small oval
Add some gray sponging and outline in black (outline AFTER assembly - you don't want a line all the way around the small oval)
Punch 2 circles from the itty bitty punch pack
Stick them on the sticky part of a post-it note
Repunch as shown in the photo below.
Add a little "u" shape in his eyes with a fine tip maker.Snip a TINY bit with your circle punch at the corner of a black scrap paper for his nose - this will need to be adhered with glue pen (too small for my preferred mini glue dots)
He's ready for a day of play
Alas, there's no more silly rhyme
Because this girl's run out of time
