Froggy went a-punching

This is a really fun project. These are the new Treat Cups from page 9 of the Mini catalogue. They are self-adhesive but if you don’t want your card to be destroyed when the recipient opens their sweets, create a slider behind it so you can pull it out and “dispense”.

You can make all manner of animals using punches – I’m going to set a date for a class to create punched animals, so keep an eye on the events page for details. It will be a Saturday morning as I know several people would like to bring their children (age 10+).

I love the Jelly Belly Jelly Bean pick ’n’ mix in the posh chocolate shop in Ambleside. It’s perfect for matching up your jelly beans to Stampin’ Up! colours. These are kiwi flavour. Fortunately I’m not keen on them, which is why there were plenty for my frogs!

These are the punches you need to make this frog:

Body: 1 ¾” circle
Head and legs: Large oval
Feet: Boho Blossoms
Eyes: ¾” circle, ½” circle, ¼” circle

Stamps: One of a Kind, Autumn Days
Cardstock: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Green Galore
Ink: Gable Green, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore
Accessories: Treat Cups, Stampin’ Write Journaller, corner rounder, 1 ¼” circle punch (inside, to dispense sweets), plus punches as listed above.
