Finding Inspiration...



I was at the dollar store the other day and this little gift bag caught my eye. I thought the penguin was so cute. I thought he would make the perfect little punch character on a tag. So I bought the gift bag (turns out it was a set of 3 little bags... so more punch characters to come!) and here is the tag I made. To make the penguin, I used the Stampin Up wide oval punch and layered a white punch onto the black punch for the body. I used the Stampin Up small oval punch for his arm. His nose was made with a piece of the small star punch by Stampin Up. And the eyes are the larger hole punch from the cropodile. I used a white pen to make the highlight on his eyes. The tree was cut with my paper trimmer and the trimmings on the tree are 1/2" circles. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

So cute-tastic. Actually your punched penguin is cuter. and your tree is cuter. The way you made his eyes fits better and you have more decorations on the tree. along with the star. Love your tag!
