As I was reading something online, I saw a mention of Frankenstein, and I realized with Halloween almost here, I’d almost forgotten about Frankenstein. We used to make lots of fun cards with one of the original steel dies we used to have, the Top Note Die. It was perfect for a Frankenstein head! But as I glanced through some images of Frankenstein to refresh my memory of how his face looked, I noticed people were using various punches to make Frankenstein, perhaps a little smaller though! I saw one candy project using the Everyday Label Punch, and decided to make a Frankenstein face with that punch.
The face turned out small, naturally, using a punch, and I could have added it to many different things, like the Clear Tiny Treat Box for one thing. Since I love the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies so much, I decided to make a Mini Treat Bag out of the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and make the Frankenstein face the focal point.
This is how you start using the Everyday Label Punch to make the Frankenstein face:
I punched one label out of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and one out of Basic Black. The Basic Black one I cut in a little less than half and then just snipped the bangs with my Paper Snips. Then I glued the black hair piece on top of the green face piece. I suppose you could leave the “lump” on top of his head, but I cut mine off, just following along that straight line on top.
For the Frankenstein face, I used the 1/2″ Circle Punch for his nose and sponged it with a little bit of Lemon Lime Twist Ink. For the eyes, I missed having the Owl Punch and forgot that would have been good to use for the eyes. Use whatever punch that you have to punch out the white eyes. You can punch smaller dots for the eyes, but the simpler thing to do is just color in the black part of the eyeballs with a black marker. I used my 1/4″ Handheld Punch for the white eyes. They are a little small but that’s okay. Just draw on his mouth and scar with a black marker.
To make Frankenstein stand out on the Mini Treat Bag, I just layered him on an Oval die cut, also one with the scalloped edge, and one of the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. The greeting is from the Spooky Cat Stamp Set.
