Christmas Mice

Had to have some little mice for the tree. Aren't they cute? Very easy to make. You will need the Ovals die, Heart Trio punch, 1/2 circle punch and Owl Builder punch.

Use the largest of the ovals from the oval die for the body. The second largest oval will need to be cut into a point to form the mouse nose. Two of the medium hearts for the ears, circles from the owl punch for the eyes.

Here you can see the underside of the mouse. The candy cane is slid in through the 1/2 hole on the top and secured to the underside by using glue dots. Strands of bakers twine, or white twine used to make the whiskers.

The second largest oval will need to be cut into a point you can see by this photo how it will look after it is cut. This will be glued to the underside of the mouse to form the point for the nose.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and super simple project!
