Star Wars Punch Art - Yoda

Today my baby turns 8!  Where does the time go?  Eathan loves Star Wars, as do most boys his age.  So I thought I would try to find some appropriate punch art.  I came across this Yoda on Debbi's Design's Blog and pretty much cased it with a few minor changes. I can't even begin to imagine how long it would have taken me to figure this out on my own, so I sure to appreciate Debbi and her willingness to share.  I was just copying this card and it took me almost an hour to make!  Apart from Yoda looking a little sad, I think it turned out ok.

Here are the details if you'd like to recreate it:
  • Head is the wide oval (as is his body)
  • Ears are the wing from the bird punch with the chocolate one trimmed down a bit.
  • Eyes and nose are the end leaf of the branch from the bird punch (in green and white), and the large and small punches on the crop-a-dile (large in green, small in brown)
  • Light saber is the word window and modern label punches
  • Arms are the small oval (retired)
  • Hands are the middle flower from the boho blossoms and the large circle from the owl punch
  • Neck - small oval
  • Shirt - just a scrap of chocolate chip
The card isn't difficult but is a bit finicky.  Definitely worth it if you have someone special in your life who loves Star Wars though!

Until next time!
