Making Monkey's

I though i would share with you all how i make my monkey's i used bear die #7, bear die#1, quickutz double die Easter egg, and my animal die for the eyes, I also hand cut a tail you can also make a template for this using the same technique as with the monkey head, draw a shape you like and then cut it out and use it as a template you cut round, then each time you will have the same shape:)

Step one. cut all the pieces that i have as in photo 1, as you can see i cut the face and smaller egg body and the feet in a tan colour.

Step 2. make yourself a template for the head so you always get the same shape, simply cut a head from bear die #1 and draw a shape you are happy with then cut it our and draw round it to make you outer monkey head. you can see in photo 2 and 3 how to do this.

Step 3. Ink and and stick all the bits you have together just as i have in photo 4, you can see i cut the tan colour for the feet so it looks like a pad on the bottom of the foot.

Step 4. When you have done all these steps you should have something that looks like a monkey, if you want to you can leave it plain you you can add a bow or eyelashes to make the most of you very own little money!

Hope you have enjoyed this little tip... have fun hugs trak xxx
