I especially love that Oscar doesn’t look particularly grouchy and can evoke a smile.  I learned the techniques and instructions to make these cards in the OWH tutorials.  http://operationwritehome.org/tutorial-paper-punch-people/  Measurements I used are:

1-1/2″ circles for whites of eyes

1″ black circles for pupils

3″ circle for mouth, cut in half

Oscar:  black eyebrows made on Cricut, George Cartridge, Rectangle 4; Mouth is a heart punch

Cookie Monster:  1-1/2″ cookie from kraft paper, hand-drawn “chips/raisins,” flower punch on edge to look like a bite was taken

Elmo:  1-1/2″ orange nose
