Creating "Friends" with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I want to share how to create some "friends", also known as finger puppets and pencil toppers! These are great for literally ANY Paper Smooches dies and stamps!!! 

Here's the video:

Here's a couple of pictures of my finger puppets and pencil toppers:
Create "friends" using ALL sizes of stamps and dies.
Create simple one-layered "friends" or decorate with lots of details!

Updateduring the video I said that I would take a pic of Trav using his pencil topper (the sandwich)... but he was too busy. So I took a pic of Latifah!!
Update#2: Trav sent me this pic of his little "Friend" at work!! LOVE it! I think he enjoys it too:)
I really hope that you will create some of these "Friends" (finger puppets, pencil toppers, and even as a desk buddy) using your Paper Smooches dies and stamps. Please leave a comment below with a link to your project! I'd love to check it out:) 

**And don't forget if you leave a comment, please add your blog address and email so I can visit you too:) love hearing from the VS followers when you've created something based off of one of our videos:) So keep leaving comments and links!!! 

ANNNNNNNNNND speaking of leaving comments {well, this is kind of a comment}-- I shared a couple of weeks ago {HERE} the youngest Virtual Smooches fan. I was hanging out with his family last week, and the conversation was mostly about my craft videos. So the youngest VS fan's dad (Michael) decided to start watching a video right then and there. He was HOOKED! And then Trav and Jeff started watching the videos! LOL! 
The guys wanted to make signet rings-- this is after watching my Wax Seal video {HERE}! LOL!

Some of you might have seen Michael's comments last week-- too funny! I love when I hear from VS fans!!! 

I hope that you will send me pics of you watching our VS videos, as well as links to your creations using some of our techniques!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Wonderful idea - beyond cute! Sorry for delays in commenting on your posts (heading off to do so now), because I was evacuated due to the flooding in our town of Canmore, Alberta. My husband still can't get home, as all roads in and out continue to be closed, due to severe damage. I'm so blessed to have a home to return to; others weren't so fortunate. Glad to have YOUR projects and cards to uplift my spirits! Hugs!
