Good Minion

Minions are the fun loving jelly beans of despicable me! They remind me of my son running around speaking nonsense. no matter what they are doing you cant help but laugh at how adorable they can be. minions are small and yellow creature that look up to Gru, like small children linking on to their parents. 

Gru took them under his wing when he was an evil villain. As the definition of google, "Minions are a follower or underling of a powerful person, especially a servile or unimportant one."  Their child like personalities are what you fall in love with. No matter whom it is from Kyle to Dave, each one shows a little of your own child!

I created this Minion using Limoncello Glitter Cardstock, Silver Glitter Cardstock, Chocolate Glitter Cardstock, Grey Fleur Cardstock.  

1. Cut 3" Cardstock Strip
2. Cut (2) 1/4" Carstock strips
3. Glue around the paper towel holder {from last weeks evil Minion instructions}.
4. Glue the 1/4" strips on each side of the body.  Wrap around to look like suspenders.
5. Cut 1/4" strip of Limonello Glitter Cardstock and 1/8" Black Glitter Cardstock and create the mouth.

You Minion should look like this after gluing on the mouth.

7.  Cut (2) 1/3" strips of Silver Glitter Cardstock and 1/4" strip of the Limoncello Glitter Cardstock.
8. Bend into odd-shaped round eyes.
9. Cover the back side of the eyes.
10.  Cut Black Glitter Cardstock and glue to make the pupils of the eyes.
11.  Place the 1/3" strip of the Limoncello Glitter Cardstock inside the tube and glue tiny strips of Black Glitter Cardstock to make the hair.  {I apologize for not taking pics of this, I got carried away}.

Gru has been hanging out all over the place.  Where do you think he will appear next?

Until next time,
