Candy Cane Mouse

Here's a cute little mouse that I designed from the Ski Slope DSP and some Stampin' Up punches. I have made something similar in felt as a Christmas decoration and thought I'd adapt it to use for paper crafting. Hope you have fun creating one of your own!


Bron's Candy Cane Mouse


Step 1
Punch out some Old Olive cardstock and matching Ski Slope DSP with the Wide Oval Punch. Punch out one medium sized heart in Old Olive DSP and two larger hearts in Real Red DSP using the Heart to Heart Punch.


Step 2
Glue the two wide ovals together for extra thickness and support for the mouse's body.

Step 3
Glue the medium Old Olive heart underneath the body and leave a bit showing for the mouse's nose.


Step 4
Use the slit punch at the end of the body for the candy cane to slide through.


Here's what the mouse looks like underneath

Step 5
Attach the large red hearts, for ears, with Stampin' Dimensionals. Use the Crop-a-Dile to punch out small eyes with Basic Black cardstock or use black brads instead. Use sticky strip to attach linen thread for whiskers. Put the candy cane through the slot. Secure with sticky strip.


Attach to a Christmas Gift Bag ...


... or use him as a decorative feature on a Christmas card.
