Aubrey's puppets

Aubrey loves my Some Odd Girl stamps. She is always yelling girrrrrlllllll and getting very excited while I am trying to photograph cards or color images. I frequently give her images to color alongside me. The other day she and I were playing peek-a-boo with a lovely lil Tia image and I decided it would be fun to make her teeny "puppets" that we could play with. 


 Its a very simple idea..... but here is a mini tutorial anyways just in case you need it.


You'll need
1. Colored and cut out images..... I used heavy weight cardstock for the images I printed and posterboard (the non shiny side) for the images I stamped.
2. leftover rubon sticks (or popsicle sticks)
3. helmar 450 quick dry adhesive



To make apply a small amount of the Helmar 450 to the top of the stick and lay it gently on the back of the image. If your kidlet is as small as mine you want to put it high enough that it has a little stability. I used the Helmar 450 because the stuff dries SO quickly that she was able to play with it less than 2 minutes after I made it!

Here they are hanging out in a pot full of cotton balls just ready to be played with. As the lovely Leah says they would also look cute in a potted plant or stuck into some sinfully delicious dessert.
