Paper Doll Benny Gift Tag

Projects that require paper layering can be challenging or quite simple. I would consider this particular project suitable for beginners. This astronauts name is Benny, he stands 8 inches tall and he's holding a gift tag. This project was applied to the outside of a wrapped gift for a special little guys 6th birthday.

Benny is what I would refer to as a paper doll, he is constructed of both 110 lb and 60 lb cardstock. Paper dolls great for party decorations, wall decor and pretend play. Benny is a cut file that was created by SVGCutting Files, this file is not available for purchase. 

The gift tag that Benny is holding was a separate cut file, it's a basic tag file that can be obtained through various svg sites. The Lego's on the gift tag were not purchased but were my own addition. The Lego's are made by adding circles to your chosen base shape, in this case a square. The circles were adhered using foam dots to give it some dimension. The gift recipients name was added to the gift tag prior to cutting out the tag using the Cameo and was then colored in with a metallic marker.
