Legions of Minions!

At our Friday Try-Day class last week we made this card, and it was so much fun seeing how many different faces and personalities these little fellows had!  I sent one right off to my Grandson T for his 12th birthday.  I hope you will enjoy making them, too!

The sentiment inside was
You're One In A MINION!

Cut yellow cardstock 4.25 x 11 and score at 5.5, creating a top fold.  Use corner rounder on top edges.
Distress all around with dark yellow ink.  I used Close To My Heart Creme Brulee.
Add a black stripe .25 inch wide across the width of the card to create the band for the goggles.
Make the goggles by punching a 1 3/8" circle in Tanzanite Gemstone paper by Co'ordinations.
Then carefully punch a 1.75 inch circle directly over the previous circle, creating a silver ring.  Repeat if your Minion has two eyes  :o)
Punch out the appropriate number of 1.75 inch white circles and .5 inch black circles for eyes.
The mouth is made the same way as the goggles, but a slightly "wonky" circle works best.  Cut a part of the circle, and arrange the mouth as desired.

Using blue paper for jeans, cut two rectangles and two "straps".
The rectangles are 1.5 x 2.5 and 1.25 x 1.5.  The straps are .25 wide and fit to length.
Distress ink with darker blue. 
Add stitching lines and "buttons" with black fine line marker.

I hope you will enjoy this card project! 

I'm off to another crop!

Happy crafting~
