3)  Punch out the rest of the pieces.  Clip one of the small ovals and the large ovals as shown. Clip the petals apart on the 5-Petal flowers.  Clip 2 petals off each medium boho blossom to create the paws. Clip off the points on the decorative label.  Clip 2 petals of the large boho blossom off to create teeth.

4) Sponge the edges of the ruby red pieces with riding hood red ink.  Sponge the edges of the so saffron pieces with more mustard ink.  Sponge the edges of the soft suede pieces with soft suede ink.

5) Glue the eye layers together.  Add highlights with a white uniball gel pen.  Glue teeth onto face piece.  Glue the black mouth piece onto back of face piece.  Glue on tongue piece and clip away excess.  Draw detail with zig pen. Attach eyes to face with dimensionals.  

6) Attach belly to body piece with dimensional.  Attach face to top of body with dimensional.  Glue large oval onto center of 1 3/4" ruby red piece to create the back. Glue the back onto back of saffron body piece.  

7) To create the tail, glue the whole small oval onto the wide oval.  Glue the clipped small oval onto the small oval.  Glue tail onto body.  Glue spikes onto top of head, down back and along tail.
