A Retro Post Tutorial - The Large Booglie Pop Out Eyed Candy Holders for Teachers Gifts

Good Morning Stampers!!!! I am busy away in my Stamping Area with Willow getting projects ready for tonights blog hop and for Sneak Peaks and I have not quite finished everything I wanted to show you this morning so as I promised throughout the month I am going to be bringing back Retro Tutorials and Halloween projects I had posted last year before I had any readers on my blog other than my good friend/SU Downline Emily, and my good friend/next door neighbor/SU Downline Tasha, and my Surrogate Mother here in Kansas Paula so here is one of my Tutorials. I made these for the kids teachers before I made all the small ones I shared the other day personally I think the large ones were cuter but the small ones could not use all the punches and such because they were so much smaller. I love this cute Frankie and I taught him in stampers Club last year too.
If I can get my projects finished edited and posted later today before the big blog hop I will be back with more to show you which as close to being done as I am I think I will, but I hate to promise and then not make it back!!!
Friendly Frankin Candy Holders
For Teacher Gifts
Here is a non cropped picture of Frankie
Frankie's Booglie Spring Eyes The Booglie Eyes Project they did at Regional's The Frankenstein Card they made at Regional's last year, I like mine and MaKenzies better, but this one had a good use of punches that is for sure!
At Regional's last year one of the Demo's who did a Workshop Wow Presentation, taught us how to make Cute Booglie Eyes Candy Favors, and a Neat Frankenstein Bag. When I got back I went to one of my Favorite Blogs to check it out, and she had a Frankenstein Bag she is teaching a class on this weekend, her name is MaKenzie and you can view her blog and her version of Frankie here.
(Last Year)
I liked her bag a lot more than the first one, but I liked the booglie eye idea too, so I took all 3 projects and combined them plus changed things up with my own idea's and this is what I came up with.
My Tutorial for these cute bags!!!
I choose to use the same technique used to make a spring card and make eyes that spring out of Frankie's head. I took the Weathered Background stamp and inked it in Real Red to get the Blood Shot Eyes. Then I stamped one of my solid circle stamps in black Staz On ink in the center of the 1 1/4 punched out circle - blood shot eye. I then made a spring with paper from the Kiwi Kiss CS I used to make Frankie, and glued it onto the Eye, and Frankie with Glue Dots.
For the nose I used MaKenzies idea and I took the Designer Label Punch to make the nose and the bolts sticking out of his head. I punched the nose out of Kiwi Kiss and sponged it with Old Olive.
I punched the bolts on Black CS and glued them onto the side of the head with my Snail adhesive.
I drew on the scars, stitches, and mouth with my Basic Black SU Marker.
I made the Hair with my Paper cutter and Scissors to cut the jagged pieces of his hair. I then sponged the hair which was on Perfect Plum paper with Elegant Egg Plant ink, I attached the top with my Snail, and the forehead part with Stampin Deminsional's.
I took a jewelers zip lock bag filled it with M&M's and attached it to the inside of Frankie with my snail.
The Deminsion's are 4 1/4" X 11 Inches Scored and folded at 5" and 6" so each side of Frankie is 5"X4 1/4" The Hair is also scored and goes from front to back of Frankie but it is only a few inches long with the score in the middle.
I hope you enjoyed the Retro Tutorial!!!!
