Mickey Mouse & A Sunflower Box

I bet you can't guess where we went for Spring Break!! LOL!! Yes, it was Disneyland! If you're anything like me you always have stampin' on your mind. The whole time we were in Disneyland I was thinking about what I could do to make a Mickey Mouse card and/or scrapbook pages. Well, we were in one of the so many stores and I found a pair of designer edge scissors that were Mickey Mouse heads. I had to have it. Didn't know what I would do with them but I still had to have them! When I got home I found out the scissors weren't that sharp and didn't cut a very clean edge so I decided to make a card using my own Mickey Mouse head. Here it is! All the details are below.
Thanks for coming by to see me today and I hope you had a great spring break!

This little box is just the cutest thing I've seen in a while. I met with some SU! friends last night and this is what Gina Cardera, one of the girls, brought for us to make! Isn't it just the cutest thing?!?!?! Gina got the idea from our SU! Website. If you are a demonstrator you can click here for full instructions and more samples. If you are not a demonstrator you can go to BJ Peters blog to see instructions on how to make these kind of boxes but you'll have to wait for her tutorial on this particular box. Sorry about that. I think it's worth the wait though!!Now for the Mickey Mouse details.
Everything is SU!
Mickey's head was made using the Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat. Cut a 2" circle.
His ears are punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch
His Face is all made using the Small Oval Punch
His nose is the 1/4" circle punch (retired)
His eyes are also made using the 1/4" circle punch for the white and 1/8" punch for the center of his eyes.
The Bow Tie is made by cutting a 1/2" square then cutting it diagonally and then add a 1/4" punch for the center.
The small Mickey Mouse corners were made with the 1/4" and 1/8" punches.
The mouth was hand drawn.
I forgot his eyebrows...LOL!
The stamp used is from the Oval All set in the Occasions Mini and punched out with the Large Oval Punch.
