I made this little project a while ago - copied from some other creative person! - but never incorporated into a class for this month. So I figured that at least I could share it here before December slips by!! Sorry he's a little blurry, but here's another Peppermint patty punch idea! Santa's head started from a 1 3/4" circle punch (which is stuck on the peppermint patty - but you could use other candies, especially since it would be fun to give to kids, who don't always like the peppermint patties. A recess peanut butter cup, little ones, could work!). Then 1/4" circles are used for the eyes and nose; 1/2" circles are the whites of his eyes. His beard and hat topper are made from the small flower in the boho blossom punch. His hat is the scallop square punch, cut in half diagonally; and the brim of the hat is the word window punch. For those of you, like me, who are the punch collectors probably have most of these and could whip a few out quickly - and could use up some small scraps to create them! If you have most of the punches, but not all, improvise and you can still make it work!
Have a good week!
