so much more than just a mitten punch

when stampin up bring a new punch into the catalogue 
i immediately buy it 
and THEN i figure out how else i can use it lol
the builder mitten punch is one of those punches-looks so boring and normal and boring and not very useful at all if you are not into mittens...am i right?

well here is a small sampler of some things i found i could make with the punch and..trust me...i am not finished yet as these ideas gave me more ideas but sadly my eyes were starting to close and my bed was calling me :>
 so a quick look-see on how i made some of these and the other punches i used
 snake-tasteful trim plus mitten for a mouth. bird punch for tongue
 turtle-mitten for head plus legs. 13/4" circle for shell plus a word window. itty bitty circle for dots.
dinosaur-mitten for head, legs and toes. large oval die for body and tail. merry mini punch for spikes
fairy-mitten for skirt. merry mini for body. elegant butterfly for wings. bird punch for arms and legs and hair. 
 flowers-mitten for flowers. bird punch for leaves.
 ice cream-mitten for scoops. pennant punch for cone. cherry on top from cupcake punch.
pudding-mitten for custard. 3/4" circle for pudding
 boy-2 mittens for body (punch out two and place over each other), hair, legs. 3/4" for head, bum and shoes.
snowman-2 mittens for body and carrot (cut off thumb). owl for bottom snowball.  3/4" circle for hat and head. itty bitty for pompom
 baby-2 mittens for body, nappy and hair. word window for legs.
bear-2 mittens for body. 3/4" circle for head. word window for legs. itty bitty for ears.
penguin-2 mittens for body, flippers and beak. word window for tummy.
