Duckie Punch Art


Duckie Punch Art

Continuing with my new fav craft, punch art, I will be posting some of my spring punch art.  I can’t say this duck is an original idea, in fact I looked extensively on-line before I started my project, but it combines the best of all of the great ideas I found and added a few unique touches of my own!

I like this craft because it gives you so much more range of die cuts than simply using your punches alone.

My ducky used a lot of different punches so you probably won’t have all of them – the challenge with punch art is to make the project with the punches you have on-hand.  So let me know what you used to create your masterpiece!

Punches Used

  • 2 inch circle punch (body)
  • 1 inch oval punch (remove piece from body)
  • 1.5 inch circle punch (head)
  • 1 inch daisy punch (feathers)
  • 1 inch folk heart punch (beak & feet)
  • 1 inch cloud punch (wing)
  • Regular circle punch (eye)
  • Zig-zag chain punch (water)
  • Small circle punches:  ½, 1, 1.5 & 1¾ inch (bubbles)

Paper Used

  • Yellow cardstock
  • Orange cardstock
  • Light blue cardstock
  • Black cardstock

Also Needed

  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • White paint
  • Small piece of natural sponge

Instructions

To start off with you will need two graduated circle punches.  As long as you have a “large” circle punch and another that is about one half an inch smaller you can make a ducky “easy-peasy”.  Lots of punches other than the cloud can be used to make the wing; a small heart leaps to mind.  A tiny heart can also be used to make the beak and feet.  Cute duck feet can also be made from a small flower punch.

  1. Sponge paint the blue cardstock with the white paint and sponge to create a lacey effect for the bubbles.
  2. Punch all shapes needed.  You will also need one additional punch of each shape punched from black to create a 3D effect.
  3. Glue black punches on each colored shape.
  4. Remove unneeded portions of the punches.  Use a small oval punch to remove a piece of the duck’s back.  I don’t have one the size I needed so I grabbed my Stampin Up bird punch and used the wing to make the “divot”.
  5. Glue punches together.
  6. Layout your scrapbook page or homemade card and enjoy!

Easter Garland


Easter Garland Right Side Upper

Easter Garland

Were has the time “flown”? It seems like yesterday was Valentine’s Day! I wanted to share with you my Easter Garland. I’ve done tutorials on some of these and will post the last few after Easter so you can get a jump start on next year!

Why am I craft blogging on Easter? because I am “home alone 2”. I stayed at home on Christmas because I had just had surgery. Now I have planter fasciitis (inflammation of the covering of the muscle on the BOTTOM of the foot) and each step is so painful (even with that drated boot!) that I didn’t go to Easter dinner either. So y’all eat some ham and coconut cake for me!

I hope everyone has had a Blessed Easter!

Mini Bunny Hug Wreath


Mini Bunny Hug Wreath

I found an Easter Egg Decorating Kit at the Dollar Tree last week and immediately said “I can make something with that!”. So here it is, my Mini Bunny Hug Wreath!

This would be a great craft for the kids.  It is easy and inexpensive.  No-one will guess that this is an up-cycled shower curtain ring!

Materials

  • Shower Curtain Rings
  • Fabric Scraps
  • Quilt Batting
  • Egg Decorating Kit
  • White Pom-Poms
  • Pastel Buttons
  • Rick-Rack

Instructions

  • Wrap shower curtain ring with quilt batting and torn fabric strips.  See my previous post “Mini Fabric Wrapped Button Wreath” (link below) for instructions.
  • Cut a short piece of the strip that is designed to wrap around an egg.  Glue it to the wreath before gluing the bunny paws to the wreath.  Glue a rick-rack strip on top of this.  Glue a nesting set of buttons in the middle.
  • Glue the bunny parts from the kit on the wreath like the bunny is hugging the wreath.
  • Glue buttons on the bunny’s paws.
  • Add a rick-rack bow with a small button centered on it to the base of one of the bunny’s ears.
  • Glue a white pom-pom on the bottom of the wreath.

 

Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoyed the tutorial.  If you have any questions or something is not clear, please let me know so that I can improve the tutorial.   

Please take a moment to leave a comment and rate this post.

Thanks again.
