  1. Hahaha...too cute! Love him! I'm amazed at your creativity with a few punches. Fantastic idea & card!

  2. Thanks! I have to say I was tickled with how he turned out. It amazes me all the time to see what people come up with using punches and now I have this adorable guy to add to my collection!

  3. A great card. I came across your minion card on a google search. Thanks for the guide on how you made it. I used this and adapted it slightly as my son likes the one-eyed ones.

  4. Angela. I'm glad I was able to help. I'd love to see what you made for your son with the one-eyed Minion!

    Have a great day!
