1  Papier Mache & Afro puffs (7 pics) in CHALLENGE 9 ENTRIES by crafts4fun on: February 05, 2006 12:00:48 AM
I made my "twin" from papier mache. 

First, I made the base....


Painted it white:


And painted the details:




Me and my twin!



This is my first challenge!  I had fun!

Thanks!  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  Before I got the punch I would hold the paper under the marble and cut around it.  Then I'd just keep cutting around until the paper was small enough. 

With this punch, though, I made, like 50 of these in no time!  I found the punch at Michaels Arts and Crafts store.  I had to go to 3 different Michaels before I found one.  This is the 1/2" punch made by Marvy Uchida.  If you can't find one in the craft store, you can always buy one online.  If you need some websites, let me know.

 Here's a picture of what the punch looks like.  The size of the silver sticker is the size of the punch.  You'd think that'd be obvious, but I wasted $8 on the wrong sized one.  This 1/2" punch was $3.50 or something like that. .  I am so glad I bought it!

I tried one.  I'm giving this to my boss' daughter for her birthday.  I love this picture marble thing.  It's addictive!
P.S.  It's really great to have a 1/2" punch.  I was cutting them all by hand and it was taking forever!
