Sentiment is from my Stamp Stash
I think making "little" characters is harder than large ones because
- its hard to adhere all those little pieces
- size is crucial - you have to have just the right size parts - there isn't a lot of "close enough is good enough" when things are very small.
Then I want to say HURRAH for Glue Pens and Paper Piercers, because you can stab a little piece of paper and deposit it right on top of the dot of glue you just made with the glue pen!!!!
For Both Mr. & Mrs Spud, (or Tater Tot, or Potato Head):
Body - owl in soft suede - sponged in soft suede ink - ears and feet cut off
Arms - oval ring in white (large oval around small oval hole) - cut the length arms you want with scissors
Hands - itty bitty punch pack circle around tips of modern label in white
Just For Him:
Ears - larger circle from owl punch in pretty in pink
Eyes - larger circle from owl punch in white - trim straight on sides, black dot from marker
Eye lids - small circle form itty bitty punch pack - cut in half (mine wasn't exactly in half and I kept it because it gives him more expression)
Eyebrows - small heart next to the top of small heart hole to get weird sliver of black- cut in half
Nose - started with small circle form itty bitty punch pack in pumpkin pie - trimmed with scissors
Moustache - ran scrap of black through crimper - punched with 1/2 inch circle then trimmed top
Shoes - small circle from itty bitty punch pack - trimmed flat, on retired slot punch (could use small strip or leave off)
Hat - top is 1/2 inch circle, brim is part of a circle ring from 1 inch circle punched around 1/2 inch circle hole
Just For Her:
Ears - circle from itty bitty punch pack in pretty in pink
Eyes - smaller (not tiny) circle from owl punch in white - black dot from tiny owl punch circle in black (or you can use a marker)
Eyebrows - small heart next to the top of small heart hole to get weird sliver of black- cut in half - position just above her eyes (more like eyeliner than eyebrows)
Nose - started with small circle form itty bitty punch pack in pretty in pink- trimmed with scissors (or use a scrap - not much circle left, huh?)
Lips - circle from itty bitty punch pack around the end of a modern label hole in real red
Shoes - toe part from 5 petal flower and heel is a retired slot punch (could use small strip) in real red
Hat - top is 3/4 inch circle, brim is part of 1 inch circle punched near small oval hole in white
Flower on hat - itty bitty punch pack flower in white, center is tiny circle from owl punch in daffodil delight
TIP: When you need just a tiny part of the owl punch - turn it over and insert just a strip or scrap of the color you need - positioning it in the right spot - squeeze. When you are just punching a little bit you can probably punch upside down.
When you need the whole owl punch you probably will need to use it right side up on a table or desk.
