How to make a cute bat out of circles

Hi All,
I found this last year and made some decorations and a card, this year I made a quickie card tonight and will show you have to make the bat you see in the card below.

You can do this with either a Coluzzle Circle cutting template - or with your Cricut in different circle sizes or with circle punches.

If you use the Coluzzle as I did, cut one of each of the 4 inner rings.

Cut the smallest circle (1inch) in half. This will be the ears.
The next circle (1 1/2 inch) is the head. Add googly eyes and a mouth with a white pen
The body is a 2" circle.
The wings is cut from the 4th (largest) circle (2 1/2 inch) cut in half and punch out scallops to look like wings.

1) adhere the ears to the head, then place eyes and mouth as you like. Put aside for a min.
2) adhere wings to the body, tilt them a little in either direction to give him personality.
3) pop dot the head by putting foam dots on the back, place onto the body, you can have him looking worried or confused by titling his head.

I have also done him upside down in a card I did last year.
Have fun - let me know if you make him.
