About the creators
I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the people that have allowed me to share their work. All of the postings have the links to the original posting - click on the name of their site. If you find something that you really enjoy please take a minute to go to their site and leave them some love!! Without them, without their permission this would not exist. I try not to get to many from one person - unless what they have is so unique. I do not get anything in return from them...but let them know you found them here with me Jackie at Glitter Fantasies.

Creating Faces Tutorial
Someone in one of the groups I am in found this very much and way to cute tutorial. And Melin who created this amazing tutorial is allowing me to post this on my blog. I am so thrilled!!! I had seen this a while ago but had lost the link (before I decided to start this blog so I wouldn't lose great ideas like this). Today it was shared again and I jumped on the chance to ask permission. Here is where the original tutorial is posted http://www.scrapbookeden.com/makingfacestutorial.htm. She asked that I also add her blog, well of course who knows what we will find there!! So here is her blog http://www.cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/ I just took a peak over there and she is really talented. Even one of her design team members is guest designer for Peachy Keen (my new addiction). So without further delay - the cutest tutorial you will ever see.

Zig Chisel Tip 2 Way Adhesive
View of what the "inked" pieces will look like.
Here is a photo of the most common "eyes" I use.
Now, you will use your Zig 2 Way adhesive to apply adhesive to the back of your eyes and nose pieces.
When you allow this adhesive to dry before you put the pieces on your face, they are easily removable. This is great for when you are first starting out, That way, you can easily adjust the position of your eyes and nose.I build my faces straight. I usually tilt the finished head on the body slightly. This will give the pieces a more whimsical look. But when building. I just build straight up and down.
