Dumbo Tsum Tsum Fan

Hi, everyone!  Today we're going to be sticking to the Tsum Tsum theme and making a Dumbo Tsum Tsum fan.
Light Blue Cardstock (Pictured: Bazzill Sparkle)
Pink Cardstock (AC Blush)
Black Cardstock (Coredinations Nightfall)
Yellow Cardstock (AC Lemon)
White or Black Fan
Double-stick Tape
Pencil (Not pictured)
Using a photo as reference, I did create templates with some heavy vellum paper.  Because most of the designs are made of fairly simple shapes, it is pretty easy to create templates of your own at home.  Another good thing about the designs is that most of them share the same slightly head shape, so once you make a template for one, you can use it to make more characters!
You're going to start by tracing Dumbo's head shape, outer ear and trunk onto the light blue paper.  Next comes his inner ear on the pink paper.  Then, it's the black for the eyes and the yellow for the hat.  Once you're finished tracing the templates and cutting the pieces out, it's time to start  layering and taping!
Layering Order
1. Tape pink "inner ears" onto the light blue "outer ear" pieces.  The ears will be taped directly onto the fan.
2. Next, comes the basic face shape.
3.His eyes and trunk come next.
4. Lastly, comes his yellow hat.
Now, a little extra something to add that punch of cuteness: Blush!
 You can tell how much I love using this dauber and paint...
 This can be achieved using a sponge dauber and some pink paint.  Just dab on a light layer of paint, taking advantage of the dauber's circular shape.
Taa Daa!  You're done!
If you want to learn how to make more Tsum Tsum fans, we will be having Make-and-Takes on Saturday, July 25th, and Saturday, August 1st, from 1 to 2 pm. at our Pearl City store.
For the first session,we will be making Mickey and Dumbo,
and for the second session, Pooh and Eeyore. 
The cost is $10 for each session.
All supplies, including templates, are included.
