Where have I been since last hop? My Punch Art should give you a clue...
I have helped a friend pack to move out of her HUGE house in Houston.
I have been to Austin, carting boxes from my attic to my eldest daughter's first solo apartment.
This next week I will move my youngest into a dorm at UT Austin. (The girls are THRILLED to be in the same city)
And when I get home from that, I continue preparing for hubby's overseas work assignment.
I am tired of the smell of cardboard but I'm now a whiz with packing tape!
IDEA: You could change this to be boxes of presents for a birthday or other gift giving occasion. OR: You could easily change it to a huge layered cake (oh yes! yum..... I'll have two pieces if it's chocolate).
And you don't have to have gray sticky out hair or boots - switch them around so you don't look like me! But if you feel the need to make ME and packing boxes, here is what you need:
Boxes - 2 rectangles of Crumb Cake - sponged (1.25 x 1.5 inches approx)
Hair - Scallop Circle in Gray - put it on a post it note, reinsert and repunch offset - lather, rinse and repeat (OK, just repeat) and then do it again for a small bang piece. Post it notes are a punchers friend - keep some handy.
Arms - 1.25 inch circle HOLE in a piece of Real Red - punch around that hole with the 1.75 inch circle - cut the resulting ring in half to get the arms. (In the spirit of honesty, I was actually wearing short sleeves through all this packing - we had 40 consecutive days over 100 degrees around here...and more in the forecast)
Hands - Modern Label in flesh tone (I still have a stockpile of retired Blush Blossom, you could use Blushing Bride) repunch each end with a 1/2 inch circle
Jeans - modern label on denim paper - trim the "bumps" off one end (need 2 since I have 2 legs) To make denim paper, simply rub your Night of Navy ink pad all over a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock. (Yes, it is that easy)
