Frog Tutorial

After a few requests, here is the tutorial for making a frog from Stampin'Up punches.

You need an oval punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch, 1/2" circle punch and 1/4" circle punch, scissors, black pen, Old Olive card stock and ink, a sponge dauber and Very Vanilla card stock. Don't forget the glue or adhesive of your choice.

Cut 2 ovals, 1 large circle, 2 1/2" circles and a flower using Old Olive card and 2 1/4" circles from Very Vanilla card.
Cut 1 oval in half length ways, discard one of the halves. Cut the flower in half.

Use the dauber to lift ink off the ink pad and gently sponge the edges of all the Old Olive shapes.

Stick the whole oval onto the large circle to create the head and body.

Then stick the 2 small Old Olive circles to the top of the frogs head, overlapping slightly. Stick the 2 small Very Vanilla circles on the small Old Olive circles. Then stick the half oval to the bottom of the body at the back to form his feet.

Then stick the half flowers to the sides of his body at the back to form his hands. It is easiest to stick them on the back then turn him over and adjust them from the front.

When you are happy with the position of your body parts, use your pen to add the features and other detail.
And there have you it, one cute frog!!
My appologies for the darkness of the pictures but it has been a very gloomy day here! I hope the instructions are ok for you all to follow! Again I am happy for you all to use my tutorial, all I ask in return is that you link to my blog to show where you found the tutorial.
Happy punching, can't wait to see what you all create with your froggy friend.
I'm off to try and come up with some other punch friends.
