The reason for that is so I could get the black body
outline of the penguin.
As you can see, this is how I got the black part of the body
where the scarf and stars are. If you don't think you can cut without having it
filled in go ahead and connect the lines. It don't have to be perfect.
I cut the rest of the smaller pieces apart from the pattern.
Just as I did the body, face down, and trace on the color you choose.
Now all you do is rebuild the pattern. You may want to print two copies of your pattern if you aren't sure you'll remember how to assemble
Instead of throwing them away, toss them in a blender with water and make some handmade paper (check out my paper making in "fun techniques)
Waste not want not!!
Only thing left to do is add the final details to liven him up!
Isn't he so cute!!!
You might notice I did not add the stars to mine. I had intentions on doing so, but it was for a swap and I ran out of time (due to my procrastinating)
If anyone is interested I think I might still have this penguin saved on my computer. Leave me your email if you want it and I will send it to you!
