It's a Penguin ready for Christmas

Well, I had another busy day today, almost feels like the holidays never happened!  And now, it is on to another Christmas project with Sonja too.  We also made a cute little penguin, that I have not names, though Sonja called hers Percy.  These are so adorable and I should be making heaps of them, it might be the bright colours!  My son also made one that I will also show you, he did his on a matchbox using the matchbox die.  I did help him quite a bit with this one!  I cased the penguin from Creations on Paper.
We used the top note die and cut it in half and I think we cut a piece of card 3" by the length of the top note and scored 1" from both sides.  We folded up the sides and adhered to the top note, trimming the little pieces of card stock that were sticking out.  We wanted to have a flat base to put some goodies in and also wanted it to be a decent size.  Sonja adhered hers where I have put a brad in the centre and it goes with his hat so doesn't look too bad.
Sonja's Percy, I like to show you, as we both do things a little different.  And now for my son's
He did most of it and even added wings on the side.
Both of ours together.
