Minions tutorial

Hi All
 it's been a while since I have done a tutorial but thought I would share this with you,

here is how i made my minions, for this tutorial i made the big minion card but the little ones are done in exactly the same way with the same framelit dies.

Using the window frames framelits I cut out one in Marina mist and one in Daffodil delight

I cut both the shapes as shown here, keep the pieces you cut off you'll be needing them,

Cut the marina mist shape in half and remove to squares as shown above, you'll need one of these squares for the next step, then using one of the scraps you will need to cut two rectangles for the minions legs,

Round the corners of the square scrap to create his dungaree pocket, add the legs and some detail with a stampin' write marker as above

Sick the little guys dungarees to his body, can you tell what it is yet :)

Using the scraps from the yellow shape create two arms, these can be whatever shape you are happy with but you can see above how i created mine. 

Add the little guys arms, I'm sure he will feel much happier now,

Cut a 1cm ( 1/4" strip) of basic gray ( if you are making a smaller minion you will need to adjust the size) this is for his goggles,  Cut a basic gray blossom with the blossom punch this is for his hands and feet,

So i cut the hands from the blossom using the bumpy edges for the fingers, cut two little feet and added a 
1  3/8" circle in smoky slate and a jumbo googly eye from a craft store.

Lastly you need to add some of the groovy hair, I made mine spiky but they are all individual minions, I also added two small scraps of smoky slate either side of my little guys eye for the sides of his goggles and a smile, because he's just so darn happy.

To make minion stand up I repeated the first two step with some daffodil delight to back the card, then i used my minion, by drawing around him onto some more marina mist to create a back for my card with legs, so he could stand up.

Thanks a minion for stopping by  he he :)

My daughters are the biggest despicable fans ever (one is 28 and twins are 20) so this card and tutuorial are both wonderful. Thank you for sharing how you made the card as I really must make 3. Tracey x

These are adorable! When I was reading the instruction I read Marina Mist as Minion Mist.
