I was SO excited to see that brand new Two-Step Owl Punch in the new Catalog – you can find it on pg 201 and priced at just $16.95 it is a bargain…and you know how I like to use my tools and stamps for more than the obvious?  Well I put my thinking cap on to see what I could come up with and ta-dah…here are some very cute penguins…

They are made using the Owl Punch, three colors of cardstock, some googly eyes and a couple of Dimensionals – what do you think?  The best bit is that you can make a penguin in literally 5-10 minutes – and they are going to be perfect for favors for my girls’ classmates – I am going to use them to decorate a Milk Carton in this weekend’s blog hop so come back on Friday at noon to check that out…they would also make fabulous lollipop toppers to make very easy treats for kids…

Want to know how to make these cute little embellishments?  Read on for the instructions…and at the very end you will find a link for a printable tutorial so that you can keep it to hand…

Firstly gather your supplies…you will need the Owl Punch, three colors of cardstock (you can use up your scraps on this project), some googly eyes or small circle punches, sharp paper snips, dimensionals and adhesive…

Then punch out the following shapes using your cardstock…trim the feet off of one of the black body shapes and to make the orange beak, simply position a corner of your cardstock into the top piece of the bib part of the punch…

Next take the body part that you trimmed the feet off of and layer on the white bib, the beak, the feet underneath and attach the googly eyes – if you don’t have googly eyes then you can use small circle punches to make some…

To make the wings, take your other black body shape and draw a wing shape onto it – cut this out and then flip it over and use this as a guide to make your other wing…

To make the wings stand out a little, use Dimensionals to adhere your wings to the penguin…and there you have a very cute little guy that you can use to embellish many things and who is very cost effective and fun to make…I can see these little characters sporting bow ties, hats, buttons, scarves…the possibilities are endless…

I would LOVE to see what you come up with using this little character – email your creations to me by clicking HERE and I will feature them on my blog…and send you a little something via snail mail as a thank you  :-)

    Thank you for posting such a fantastic and creative idea. I have literally been searching the web for a penguin punch, and frustrated that the closest I could get to it was an owl. Now I will buy the owl and make plenty of penguins
