Sesame Street Punch Card




My daughter's friend turned 18 and we made her this card. My daughter is giving it to her with some big girl pants--Pull Ups. Then, she's giving her the real gift :) Anyway, this was a really easy card to make using the Scallop Punch and different sized circle punches. The greeting is a Chit Chat rub-on. The other part of the rub on is on the inside. "Birthdays are awesome. And so are you!" I LOVE<3>


If you like this card, make sure you sign up for my Feb. & March punch classes that are free with a punch purchase. And you'll also get a free punch class by mail if you order a punch online.

Hi, Mirabella :) I'm soo NOT computer savy. I can't figure out how to email you, so I'm putting the directions here, hoping that you'll see them. The bases are all scallop circles, the white eyes are 1/2" circles, the blacks of the eyes are all 1/4" circles, the noses would be 1/4" circles, the eyebrows on oscar are the slit punch, big bird's beak is the small oval folded in half and in the bottom half is a red slit for his tongue. The mouths are all 1 inch circles with the tops cut off to form a mouth shape. EXCEPT Oscar's big mouth is 1 1/4" circle and has most of the top cut off. The round red tongue is from the 1/2" circle. The cookie is made from the 3/4" circle (stick that circle onto a post it note and feed it into the scallop circle punch to bite off part of it. I just used the colors I had on had. Big Bird--Summer Sun yellow, Elmo- Real Red, Cookie- Pacific Point Blue, Oscar--Kiwi Kiss.

Hope this helps. If you still have questions, just ask :)

p.s. Thank you so much for all your sweet comments :)

Oops. I just saw that I said slit punch. I meant slot punch, but you probably realized that :)
