Step-By-Step Tutorial Frankie Treat

Here it is!  A step-by-step tutorial for making your own cutie patootie Frankie Treat!
It's sooooooo easy.

Let's go -
1.  Cut your 4" x 11" base.  I used Wisteria Wonder card stock.

2.  Score along the 11" side at 1", 5", 6" and 10".

When you fold on the score lines, it will look like this.

3.  Sponge around the "front" of your base (one of the 4"x4" squares to add depth and dimension to your project.

4.  Cut out a "face" for your treat box.  The card stock I used is Pear Pizzazz, and I used the Top Note from Stampin' Up!, along with my Big Shot.

5.  Sponge around the outside of the face to add depth and dimension.  Don't worry about the top-most part.  It will be covered with hair.

6.  Cut a 2" x 4" piece of Basic Black for Frankie's hair.

7.  Cut out uneven hair for your little guy.  Perfection is not our goal here.  Just have fun with it.

8.  Place your face on your treat front - no adhering yet!  This step is to let you see where you need the hair.

9.  Put adhesive on the back middle part of your hair, and lay the hair on the face, making it even with the top of your treat front.  Take the face off your treat front (you can do this because it's not adhered, right?) and trim the hair around your face.  Then trim the top part of the head off so that it will be even with the treat top.  You can do this with scissors or a trimmer, it's up to you!

10.  NOW it's time to put adhesive on the back of your face and lay it on the treat front.

11.  Punch out the beginnings of the eyes.  I used a small oval punch and Tangerine Tango card stock.

12.  Punch the whites of Franie's eyes with 3/4" circle punch.  I used Whisper White for my white.

13.  Punch out 1/2" circles from Basic Black card stock for Frankie's eyes.

14.  Begin to layer the eyes onto Frankie's face.

15.  Using a white gel pen, create some dimension on Franie's eyes.

16.  A crooked little smile with stitches is added with Basic Black Stampin' Write marker.

17.  A bit of green was sponged on for a "nose" (optional). 

18.  A bag of candy is punched onto the top back flap of the treat pouch.

19.  Fold it over and then adhere the top flap over it with strong adhesive (I used Sticky Strip).

20.  Now for the "bolts".  Out of Whisper White, I punched a label.  You can use Silver or Gray card stock here if you want.  Any of them looks nice.
21.  Put the label back in the punch and move it until it looks like this.  You will punch out a smaller label to use for another project (if you want).  It's so cute!!
22.  The two pieces look like this.  Now put the larger piece in, turned around and punch another smaller label for another project (didn't know you would get so many cool little things to use for another project, did you?)
So they look like this:  two small labels and one "bone" looking thing.  That's the piece we want!!
23.  Cut it in half and then sponge the edges.

There you go!  Enjoy!!
So easy, huh?
