How ADORABLE are these penguins? I was asked to help make decorations for a wintery baby shower and penguins became the theme. I Pintereste’d some ideas and found that the Oval Framelits would be a good size to make large penguins to add to a banner and as table decorations. These cute little guys stand at a whopping 5 1/2″ inches tall.
Are you ready to make these cuties?!? Grab your Big Shot and Oval framelits and let’s get started. For each penguin, you will need one half sheet of Black card stock and one half sheet of White card stock. You will also need Coastal Cabana, Real Red, and Pumpkin Pie scraps for the nose, feet, and penguin scarves.
Stampin’ Up! Supplies:
- Oval Framelits
- Big Shot
- Curly Label Punch
- Basic Black card stock
- Whisper White card stock
- Coastal Cabana card stock
- Real Red card stock
- Pumpkin Pie card stock
- Googlie eyes
- Solo cup to trace the head shape
Below I have created a graphic to show you which Ovals you will need to create the penguins. I have also numbered them from outside (1) to the innermost, smallest oval (7). The penguin body is the third larges, his belly is the 4th largest and the face also uses framelit 4, cut to fit the circular head. The wing is made from framelit number 7, cut down the middle vertically.
While you are at it, you will need to cut out 2 curly labels, one for the feet (cut it in half and you have both feet) and one for the nose. To make the nose, cut from the pointy center point to the other pointy center point (the one straight across) in an arc, to form an rounded nose (See diagram below).
Body: Adhere White Oval size 4 to the body, Black Oval size 3. Adhere feet to back of penguin.
Face: To form the face, trace the bottom of a Solo cup onto Black card stock and cut out by hand. Slim down the white oval for face and adhere. Use liquid glue to adhere the googlie eye to your penguin. Attach nose behind penguin’s face. Adhere face to body, slightly overlapping.
Scarf: To make the scarf cut a 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ strip. Break down the fibers by rolling the strip against a bone folder. Wrap the scarf around the neck and fold one side forward. Adhere on front and back and cut fringe on each end of the scarf.
Wing: Lastly, adhere the half Black Oval size 7 to the body with the straight edge facing outward (away from face), tucking it slightly under the wing.
Here are the sweet penguin babies on the adorable banner made with Oval Framelits and the retired sweater trim, as well as snowflakes.
