Felt Finger Puppets Card

Just popping in with another fun project. This one is inspired by Jennifer McGuire Ink’s Share Handmade Kindness project featuring children this week,

I’ve been wanting to make these finger puppets for my friend’s daughter ever since I got this stamp set from Unity, so I finally sat down and tried it…

Argh… my teal looks more blue than green in these pics. Having a teal elephant was fun… with his trumpeting trunk, he’s a real tattle-teal! (ok, we groan, but the little ones giggle!)

When I first stamped these cuties onto the felt with Staz-On, They didn’t really stand out:

Hand stitching is NOT my forte, but I think they turned out cute enough for little fingers to have fun!

They were mounted on the card with just a glue dot so they could be removed easily.

I think she’ll have lots of fun playing with her new little friends!
