My friend, Noelle, asked if I could come up with a Mario-themed Valentine's Day card for her son, who is in love with all things Mario. Here's what I came up with:
tutorial by Jessica Lewis for making the Mario out of punches. Check it out for complete instructions. For this Mario, you'll need the following punches: 1-3/4" Scallop
Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1/2" Circle, Bitty Circle (from Bitties punch
pack), Scallop Oval, Ornament, Small Oval (or Word Window), and I used
the circles on the Owl punch for the eyes. I changed a few things - I used the Small Oval punch for the front of the had (I know it's retired, but it was easier than cutting down the Word Window punch!).
I also thought it would be cute to make the "coins" that sit on the pipe out of red glimmer hearts in honour of Valentine's Day. I used the Small Heart punch for those.
Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone,
