elvis tutorial

as promised here is my elvis punch art tutorial this is just a very basic way of making my version of the king feel free to add as much bling to him as you want lol i use tombow as my glue of choice-sticks like shit and goes a long long way :> righto to start you will need to punch out the following: wide oval in white and razzleberry 1 3/8" square in white and blue word windows in blush blossom x 2 11/4" circle in blush blossom and black horizontal slot with 2 blacks and 1 blush blossom 3/4" circle in red and black 1/2" circle in blue photo corner in white 10cm strip of white (2cm at one end and 1 cm at the other end)
this is what you will need for the body. cut your razzleberry oval into half and then take a triangle out the top cut your strip about 3cm from the narrow end. stick the arms and legs on as shown with your photo corner to guide you cut word window in half and add a horizontal slot to one of the ends making sure your finger is on the up side (hopefully that makes sense?-otherwise your elvis' finger will look stupid) shoes are made from a square punch. cut in half and half again tkae a little triangle out of themglue shoes on add waistcoat to front cut out half a square and stick down with blue belt buckle circle to it
add glittery scarf (just make sure you don't set heat and stick powder to your kitchen bench in the process of doing this because when combined with aqua supernova glitter it is a bitch to get off....not that i would kow ANYTHING about that....ssssshhhh...rolls eyes....) now for his head
here are the parts you will need for the head
on back stick ears down
stick black hair on
add side burns and flicky bit at front
add mouth and then draw in eyes
voila! then add to a card to anything. i stamped down the "you rock!" stamp with black ink onto some razzleberry card for my convention swaps
hope that helps please leave a comment if you use my tutorial and share your elvis creation with me! cheers ears

I am a teacher full time and we are planning a Book Club for the Fall for the book: All Shook Up. I am going to use this to make Elvis punch art with my students. Thank you for the idea.
