NOTE:  The easiest way to slim down the Tail stripe is to attach it to the sticky part of a Post-It note and hold it in the tail part of the punch trimming off the same width along one side.
~Flirty Flamingo (small flower on Blossom Builder Punch)
~Use the smallest Layering Oval Framelit on the Whisper White Body punch out to cut the white body front.
4.  Assemble and glue together:
~The Head:  Basic Black Head, Whisper White face piece and hair.  Use your Basic Black Marker to edge the hair.  Choose the Eyes & nose stamp you want and Stamp it on the white face piece with Memento Black ink.  Now add the Flower with a Pearl in the center.
~Body:  Glue the Whisper White oval cut out to the Basic Black Body.  Glue the Body to the Head.
~Tail:  Glue the Whisper White stripe to the Basic Black Tail.  Glue to the Body.
We are now finished with the Skunk.

6.  Attach your Skunk to the Tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used half Dimensionals.
7.  Add your Washi Tape at the lower part of your Tag.
8.  Add your Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon to your Tag Hole.  I used about 6″ of Ribbon, folded it in half, then put the folded edge through the front of the Tag Hole.  I then threaded both ends through the ribbon loop at the back of the Tag Hole and pulled the Ribbon tight.  Attach the Tag to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure one of the half Dimensionals is on the Ribbon.

Flower Petals Fancy Favor Bag

My grandson gave me the idea to make a little bag with a handle.  I used the Paisley Petals DSP, the Fancy Favor die, the Build a Blossom stamp set and coordinating Blossom builder punch.  For the center of the flower I used the Itty Bitty Punch Shapes Pack flower.  Card stock and ink was Baja Breeze.  The handle is a strip left over after the die was cut.  It is about 1/2″ wide and 12″ long.  I attached it with Sticky Strip.
