Yesterday I showed you the Rudolph decorations I made for our recent winter Christmas weekend.
Today I wanted to show you how I made the eyes.
At first I used my large oval punch, cut 2 white ovals and 1 black oval, cut the black oval in half and stuck the black bits over the white bit. These looked quite fine, but a little too small in proportion to the face (made from a top note die). So I used my extra large oval punch to cut the white and the large oval to cut the black, and trimmed down the black section.
Step one: Cut 2 white extra large ovals and 2 black large ovals. Place the black ovals over the white until the proportions look right. Stick the black down with the rest of the oval hanging over the bottom.
At this point I also use a white pencil or Signo pen to add a little white line in the black. I forgot to take a photo of that step, but you can see this detail in the photo above.
Anyway, I hope that gives you some ideas as I found working out the eyes a little more ‘fiddly’ than I’d expected!
