Man, can you believe the stores are already putting out their Halloween decorations and candy? I guess that means the holiday season is creeping up on us. But that also means fun holiday projects like a ton of fabulous Halloween Punch art. I’m participating in a blog hop with 13 other extremely creative folks. I had a ton of ideas and they are mostly half done on my craft table. So, while I work on figuring out what to do with my little creatures on the table, here is a quick card I created after being inspired by a skull image I saw online.
I have to say that Mr Bones here looks even cuter in real life. 🙂 I made his head by punching out a 1 3/4″ circle and then using the word window punch to cut out the sides of his face for cheeks. I used a few different circle punches to get his eyes and the small heart from the Heart to Heart punch to make his nose. His jaw is made using the wide oval punch. You punch out an oval from white cardstock and then punch the center of the oval out using the wide oval punch again. His bow tie is the modern label punch that I trimmed in the top and bottom to make the bow tie shape and then added some additional circles for the knot. Kinda snazzy, huh? I love what a few basic punches can do!

I envy anybody that can sit down and create characters with punches — and yours is “wicked” (as in “awesome”).
I love your skull. Amazing
This is so cute and you are clever to bring him to life. Thanks for sharing.
