How To Make A Hippo

I have been asked quite a few times on how to make the hippo, so I thought I would use it for my first tutorial. Please bear with me if this is a little rough I promise I will get better at tutorials!

Chocolate Sundays will return next Sunday, as there was so much going on with Autism Awareness Month, and I really wanted to share our slide show with you!

Hippo Tutorial

Supplies: Scalloped Circle Punch, Marker, Googlie Eyes, Word window Punch, Small and Large Oval Punch, Circle Punch, CM Oval Cutting System, Small Circle Punch, Bordering Blue and Black Card stock, Dimesionals.

First assemble the face, and draw on eyelashes

Add smallest of the large ovals to the bottom of the face

Next add the two circles to the face

Then take the second oval(nose) and attach the teeth and the nostrils, so now you will have 2 pieces to the face

Attach the 2 pieces of the face together like this

Add completed face to scalloped circle on dimensionals and finish card!
