Tutorial Wednesday???

Yep, that's right, it's a bonus Tutorial Wednesday! I'll be showing you how to make the cute penguin Ghirardelli boxes from this post last week. The pictures aren't so great. I made this at night and had to use the flash instead of natural lighting.
It's really easy, so here's what you'll need.
For the penguin:
Wide Oval--black, Large Oval--white, Small Oval--black and pumpkin pie, 1 3/8" circle--white and black, 1/4" circle--black, Round Tab--pumpkin pie, Heart to Heart Punch--Rose Red.
For the box:
1 piece cardstock 6 x 3 1/2 score at 2 1/2 and 3 1/2
2 pieces of cardstock 4 x 2 1/2 score at 1/2 and 1 on 3 sides
I've already assembled most of my penguin, it's pretty self explanatory, I'll show you how to make the head, since that's the confusing part.

To make the penguins head, punch 2 small ovals next to each other.

Use the 1 3/8" circle punch and punch out only the outline of the ovals.

Glue to the white circle.

Assemble the rest of your penguin together.

Your two pieces of 4 x 2 1/2 cardstock will be the inside pockets of your box. To make the pockets, fold on your score lines at 1/2 and 1 on three sides. Cut the corner off, on the score lines and put sticky strip on the outside tabs.

Glue your pockets on the inside of your box. Do not glue on the score lines of your box.

Glue your penguin on the front. I used a piece of 2x3 cardstock under my penguin. Punch holes for the ribbon above each pocket, making sure not to punch through your penguin.

Slide your ribbon through your box.

Put your chocolates in...

Tie closed and your done! Couldn't be cuter!
Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow!
