My Version of Frankie

Everyone seems to be making this card or something with this pattern like bags, boxes, notebooks you name it they are making it. Such cute idea's out there. I will be doing more with him to just need to get the time. Frankie, is so easy to make and with limited supplies you can make him too. Halloween is not that far away so I will be doing some Halloween projects and sharing them as time permits.
I have been taking care of my Mom who had a stroke as many of you know. My time in stamping and creating has been very limited. What little time I have had I have been trying to spend with my family instead of stamping. Today I got a chance to create Frankie so wanted to share him with you.
Supplies needed:
Certainly Celery Card stock
Basic Black, Whisper White Card stock
White Gel Pen
Black Marker
Tab Punch
1 inch, 1/2 inch circle punch
Pop dots

Basic card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in Certainly Celery.
With Certainly Celery and 1 inch punch you need one circle, cut in half for eyelids.
With 1 inch punch cut out 2 white circles. Eyes
With 1/2 inch punch cut out 2 black circles. Eyes
With Certainly Celery punch out a nose piece. This will be cut in half.
Sponge around eyelids and nose.
Add pot dots to back of eyelids.
Add nose to card stock kind of centering. Add the white eyes above and then the black circles. Then add little comma's with a white gel pen. Pull tab off of pop dots on back of eyelids and attach as shown in the sample.
Cut hair as you desire, adhere to top of card.
With black marker make scars in places you like. Then add the mouth, can be any kind of mouth. Add stitching to scars and mouth and he is complete.
Option: Some have added a arrow or make a card stock screw for his neck. I omitted that.
He is so easy to make and is such a cute card. I am thinking of making him into a coaster also.
Get started on your Halloween cards and have them ready.
