So here is how to make the head for the Geisha Favor:

Parts to make the Geisha:
Head/Neck: (1) 1" Circle Punch - Blush Blossom. Use Fine Line Black pen for eyes, Fine Line Red pen for lips and Pink Chalk for cheeks. Punch (1) 3/4" Square - Blush Blossom
Hair: (2) 1-1/4" Circle Punch - both in Black CS . Cut one of the 1-1/4" Circles in half and clip some bangs.
Bun: (1) 5/8" Circle Punch
Hair Embellishment: 3/16" x 3/4" color to match dress + small flower+adhesive rhinestone
Collar: (1) 3/4" Square - Whisper White. hand cut a "v" shape to one section (as shown)
Obi: 1/2" x 1-1/2" solid color to match dress (snip off at an angle as shown), attach with adhesive, position above the horizontal line.
1.Attach Obi to the body of the favor: cut each ends at a slight angle.
2. With one of the 1-1/4" Black Circle, attach 5/8" Black Circle bun and attach 3/4" Square Blush Blossom neck - set aside.
3. Attach bangs to face.
4. Hand draw eyes, mouth and chalk cheeks
5. Apply dimensional to head underside.
6. Attach head to hair, be sure the bun is "inside" so the back of the head is "clean".
7. Adhere hair embellishment, then adhere flower with a mini glue dot. Then attach adhesive rhinestone
8. Attach collar under neck.
9. Slip entire piece into favor box top.
Assembly 2,3,5:
Assembly #4
Assembly #6,7,8:
To make the flower for her hair:
Because Washi paper is a bit thin, add a piece of scrap which will assist in punching the flowers:
Use a round tip tool, push on a mouse pad or soft surface in a circular motion and soon the flowers will start to "curl"
See the right flat flowers (Yellow arrow) compared to the dimensional flowers.............

Project is now complete...........................I hope you will make a few of these, too.
Note: Punched used is SU's trio Flower Punch p- the smallest one was used.

A bit intimidated by all the folds for the body but it's very cute. So much potential for the different facial expressions. Thanks for sharing the tutorial
