It seems like everyone I know is having a baby this summer! I have three gifts to send off to happy new parents this week, so I thought it would be efficient to do some assembly-line-style card making.
You will need a circle cutter, circle punches in 2-1/2″, 3/4″, and 1/4″ diameters, scissors, double-stick tape, chalk, 6-1/2″ square envelopes, and paper in the colors of your choice. I cut 12 x 12″ heavyweight scrapbook paper in half, creating 6 x 12″ strips- one of these will be the base of your card.
Using a circle cutter, make a 4-3/4″ circle for the baby head, then out of the same paper, punch one 3/4″ circle- this will be cut in half to make both ears.
Using a 2-1/2″ circle punch, punch along the edge of a piece of paper, creating a semi-circle, slightly less than half- this will be the mouth.
Punch another 3/4″ circle for the hair.
Two 1/4″ circles will be the eyes,
and a small white rectangle will be your baby’s tooth.
All of these shapes can be hand-cut, but if you choose to make multiples, using craft punches will save you time.
