I Want My Mummy!!!

Ok, let's hope I don't need any gauze. Or should I put it this way, let's hope I don't need any clean gauze!!! I was surprised at how much gauze this card took! And what shocked me even more was that I couldn't find the gauze in the store. I had to buy this "new" gauze. I know, it's all about advancing but gauze?? It's just gauze!!! This stuff sticks to itself. It can work with you and against you at the same time!!!



It is a fun card to make. Not so scary so the little kids will like it and not be afraid. Maybe it's the smile or the blue eyes that get to you!!! LOL

I took a couple of pieces of the new gauze and put it evenly on the top and bottom of the card stock (which was cut 5" x 3 3/4" to allow for the layers of the gauze). I then began taking strips and adding them at angles. When I got towards the center I added a cotton ball so it makes it look like there's a nose there. It doesn't show up so well in the photo. Now be sure you put the nose where you want it because it will stick to the gauze and it's a mess to move it. Speaking from experience here!!! LOL



I used various circle punches for the eyes and one large punch for the mouth. I punched a large circle, moved the card stock just a little bit and then punched it again to give it a nice smile. I was thinking of doing these on a smaller level so they fit on a small bag, or the 2,4,6,8 and 2,5,7,9 boxes. But for now it's just a quick cute card.

I did glue the eyes and mouth in place. I didn't think they would stay with tape. And I did glue the back of the gauze card to the top of the black card stock. Again I didn't think tape would hold it. I used clips to hold it in place until the glue dried. I added a couple of dots of white on the eyes with the gel pen and it's all done.

Don't forget to leave me your "bid" for the Blog Candy. SO many tempting offers. I'm REALLY leaning towards those unmatched socks!!! But the one with the vacuum cleaner bag that could have some brads in the bag has got me thinking too!!! LOL Believe me, I've done a LOT of "thinking" reading these comments!!! You all are SO funny! You make my day!!

What a great idea for a non-scary card. My little buddies will love getting something like this. They scare easily, but a smiling mummy should put them in the t-or-t spirit. Thanks -- once again, and always -- for your great ideas.
