I have to admit this was not my idea. The credit goes to an article in the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of "Pages". But it inspired me to dig through the button bin and make my own little button card journal. If you've got the inspiration but are lacking materials, I've got button cards galore over at the store ... and they're 50% off through Jan 31!

Step 1 | Draw a fox
rim any overhanging pieces back to the base shape when you're done collaging. I decided the papers I chose conflicted too much, so I applied a light coat of white paint to unify them (note the difference between the body above and the tail below)
Step 5 | Cut out cheeks and tail tip from a light-colored paper and attach. Cut out legs from a contrasting dark-colored paper and attach. Reassamble body and glue to background (I glued right over my original drawing; I like how some of the pencil marks are still visible)
Draw eyes; cut out and attach a small circle for the nose and two triangles for the inside of the ears. I outlined the cheeks with pencil.
