So Stinkin' cute - punch skunk nugget holder

I am going to do the best to give you a tutorial on how to make this cute skunk. I saw the idea at Danee Hoangs blog site. Mine is a little different than hers, but it is still stinkin' cute!

Cut a strip of black card stock 1 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch. Score at 2 and 3 inches. You will need two large white petals, one small white petal, and one oval. (its hard to see the writing)

Punch these pieces using the Word Window punch, Ornament punch, Large oval punch, Blossom Petal Builder punch
The Heart can be any heart punch or the new Framelits, you will also need a round pink circle- mine came from the Owl builder punch.

The top half will be the centers of the ears, the bottom half will be the stripe in the tail.

Trim the ornament "holder" off the ornament.  Glue the small white petal to the ornament.

Glue the top half of the large petal to the small black petal- do two for the ears.Trim the extra white.

Glue the ears to the back of the head, and the oval to the top of the strip.  Glue the oval above the score line.

Cut the word window in half and glue ends to back, then bend to come around the front, glue heart in hands.  If your heart is smaller, you may need two word window punches to make the hands long enough to hold the heart.

Glue the bottom of the large white petal to the large black petal for the tail.  Trim the extra white.
Glue the tail on the back, the pink nose, and googlies eyes!

Fold on score lines and tape the back together making a pocket for the nugget.

I hope you have a clever saying to go with your skunk like: Your so stinkin' cute! or I Love You so Stinkin' Much... you get the idea!
