It was my littlest minions birthday the other day – and you guessed it –
he loves minions!
So a minion card was a must. I hunted around on Pinterest and found one very similar to this from WildWestPaperArts.com. I couldn’t find the direct link to the card itself, so I CASEd it with a few minor changes.
Minion colours call for the brightness of Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point Card Stock to achieve just the right look.
The card base opens at the bottom. I created the curved head by using the circle framelit that matched the width of the card. I positioned it so as to leave a portion of the top of the card uncut. I then ran it part way through the bigshot so as to only cut to the edges of the card.
Use a black 1/2″ strip and run from edge to edge and hand cut the excess.
Use smaller circle framelits to cut the silver glimmer paper for the eye. Cut the larger circle first, then create the ring by using the next size down and cut an inner circle.
Use the same larger framelit that you used for the eye to cut a piece of window sheet and one in plain white card stock.
Adhere the window sheet using tombow to the back of the silver glimmer ring.
Punch a pacific point circle with the 1″ circle punch, then a black circle with the 3/4″ punch. Adhere those to the white circle you cut earlier.
I still have some shaker frames – so I used one of those and positioned it between the silver glimmer paper / window sheet piece and the white circle piece for a 3D effect.
Cut a square from the square framelits in pacific point.
I used the word window punch with the ends cut off for the shoulder straps and the note tag punch for the pocket.
Draw on stitch lines and the mouth and you’re done!
I also thought it would be cool to make our own matching lolly bags for the party guests!
So using our Gift Bag Punch Board and Daffodil Delight Card stock, I made the bags so they are ready for our little guests to decorate.
The guests will make the bag in the background as its bigger (for more lollies you see!). It was made using the ‘medium’ line on the punchboard. The card stock was 11″ x 7″.
All I then needed to do, was make sure I had extra shapes for them to stick on (minus the window sheet as I thought it may be to fiddly for little fingers), and a peg that they can draw some hair on, for the closure.
I really hope you like it and have a go yourself!
