To Market, To Market...

My children's primary school is having a Fiesta in 2 weeks time & I am lucky enough to be holding a stall during the day.  So I have been very busy making varied items to sell & show-case all  the amazing products from Stampin' Up!.

For this project, I've used the Owl Punch, which is in the Annual Catalogue to make these fun minions!!


I especially love to use SU! products in ways that it wasn't necessarily intended & these guys certainly meet that brief!







But I think this guy is my favourite!!


I just love how the Owl Punch is so versatile!!
(Perhaps this is the time to admit that I haven't seen either of the Despicable Me movies???)

And so because I am in such a great mood that you are here, looking at my new blog, here is the 'recipe' for you to make your own minions, using the Owl Punch. Be sure to work from left to right when assembling them, it makes it easier with a cleaner finish too :)

I am going to make this for my great grandson, who will be 6. The only problem is that my daughter, who loves minions will be jealous! Thanks for such adorable cards.

Jo said...

Love it! Thanks for sharing. What is the size of the eyes? Is the dot behind the eyes the big or little circle?

Hi June, thanks for the comment and sorry that I havent responded earlier. The eyes are from Spotlight, a googly type but I usually make them using the Owl Punch eyes and putting them together. Fiddly but they look great when done....
