Punchy Penguin Fun

Here's one of the projects we made at my workshop this month. A Punch Penguin card inspired by Mercedes Weber again. She submitted this winning idea to SU, using punches to create fun holiday tags. I modified my penguin quite a bit, but the inspiration came from Mercedes for sure!! You have to see the adorable pilgrims she has posted on her blog today...check it out right HERE....they're simply adorable! Thanks for all the punchy inspiration Mercedes :) !!!

Punches I used for my Penguin:

Head: Black 1 3/8" Circle

Arms (wings): Black Small Oval

Body: Black Wide Oval & White Large Oval

Feet & Beak: Tangerine Boho Blossoms

Eyes: White 1/4" Circle, Black Double Circle

Earmuffs: Ski Slopes DP 1/2" Circle, Real Red Band 1 1/4" Circle & 1 3/8" Circle

Hat for the Penguin below: Real Red Scallop Square & 1/4" Circle

Snowballs for the Penguin below: White 1/2" Circle Punch with Crystal Effects & Chunky Glitter

Here are a couple more tags I whipped up for examples. They are so much fun to make!!
