HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
- Cardstock (I used black, red, green, orange, and white)
- Liquid Glue
- Foam Tabs
- Double-Sided Tape
- Roll Candy (like Rolo or Mentos)
- Electronic cutter (cricut explore or maker, silhouette, or other cutter)
- Cut File – Penguin Candy Roll Cover BA2304 (click here to get the SVG file for free from my free SVG Library)
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE FREE SVG FILE
The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project. I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library. These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others. This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Penguin Candy Roll Cover BA2304. It will be listed under the Craftmas 2023 Category-Day 4.
STEP 2: CUT THE PIECES FOR THE PENGUIN
Open the design in your software program. Resize the design to 4.6″ tall. This will fit a package of Rolos. You can use other roll candy, but you might need to adjust the size of the design.
Once the first piece of cardstock is finished cutting, remove it from the cutting mat. You’ll want to slightly bend the cutting mat and carefully pull off the cardstock.
Load on the next color and repeat until everything has been cut.
STEP 3: ASSEMBLE THE PENGUIN
Glue the white oval onto the black rectangle. You’ll want to center it from top to bottom and place it a little off-center from left to right.
Put some double-sided tape onto the back of the right side of the rectangle. Attach that end of the rectangle to the Rolo package.
Add adhesive to the other side of the rectangle and wrap the rectangle around the package of Rolos.
Glue the hat brim, hat, and white circle onto the head.
Glue the face, eyes, and beak onto the head.
Add foam tabs to the back of the feet
Attach the feet to the bottom of the candy roll.
Attach the head to the top of the candy roll using a foam tab.
Wrap the red scarf piece around the candy roll and glue it in place.
Finish off the penguin by gluing on the two scarf ends.
And that’s it! This project is finished. I just love how it turned out!
