Oh, there you are Perry!
This is a little different than the typical posts on my blog but this one was too cute not to share. My daughter loves Phineas and Ferb and her birthday is in a few days (Sept. 11) so I thought I would surprise her by making a Perry card. She has a t-shirt that matches this.
In addition, I played around with some paper piecing too. Paper piecing your favorite characters is so easy. All you need is a coloring book or image off the internet, a sheet of transparency paper, a sharpie, and a copier.
Simply lay the transparency over the image and trace all of the individual parts. Next, copy the transparency on the copier and then you have the pattern. Cut out all of the pattern pieces and trace onto your colored card stock. Cut them out and piece together. Its so simple!
It's great when your little one loves characters but there isn't any specific scrapbook paper for. Phineas and Ferb is definitely one of those. I keep waiting for Disney to bring out paper or cricut to make a cartridge...til then...I'll keep paper piecing.
Happy stamping...er, I mean paper piecing!
