I absolutely love how Lightning McQueen came out. I heated foam to shape the outside of the car and the lightning. It really looks like it's popping out. Headed for a little boy's room :). Zoom away stinkin cute car.

I am happy to be offering my first free tutorial on my blog. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
You will need the following:
Iron, foam sheets (black & white), piece of fabric, scissors, 1.5"(half) polystyrene ball, glue gun, foam mold
(Can be purchased here. If mold not available, please email me for a pre-order. firstname.lastname@example.org)
Cut a square piece of foam and iron it (cotton setting for about 5-10 seconds). Make sure you cover your foam sheet with a piece of fabric.
Foam will curl - turn over and place it into the mold. Gently press down the mold to obtain shape.
Remove sheet from mold and cut And glue onto the polystyrene ball.
(use only small amounts of hot glue)
Cut small strip for the whiskers.
Draw in eyes with a sharpie. Also draw nose.
Cut a white strip of foam and make a small ribbon
Glue strip around the head to cover any polystyrene. Glue hair bow.

Glue to ribbon of your choice.
