Sesame Street Characters made out of Punches

Today I am so excited to show you a project that my friend Kelly and I did together for our friend Nancy at work. Nancy is totally in love with elmo and seriously who wouldn't be?, he is so cute with that adorable voice...speaking of elmo's voice Kelly can mimic his voice like no other I know and I have it recorded!! hehe!!!  It is on my tablet and for some reason my tablet won't let me sign in to blogger, it keeps reloading , is anyone else having this problem? I want to sort it out before I go to Halifax so I can keep up with all of you.
  Here is my card made from punches!!!
To make these cute characters use:
1 1/2" Scallop Punch
1 1/4" circle punch  (cut in half for mouth)
 1/2" circle punch (Cookie)
5/16" circle punch (Elmo's nose)
Googly Eyes ( I used one big eye and one smaller eye on 2 of my characters to add character, hehe)
Yellow/ White Cardstock for card base and 2" squares
Tan cardstock (for cookie)
Blue polkadot pattern paper
Black marker ( add eyebrows and dots on cookie)
Here is the inside , we made a mega elmo!!
We brought the card to Nancy and the recording of Kelly's super cute Elmo voice and the reaction Nancy gave was worth every second we put into creating it, she adored it and was very touched and of course she laughed ... again who wouldn't????

Have a super day and get out those punches that have been sitting getting no use, I have become addicted!!
