Create Spot, the Foodspotting Mascot!

I was inspired to create Spot, the Foodspotting mascot, since they just celebrated their first birthday! If you’re a shutterbug like me, you love taking photos of anything and everything, event your food! Foodspotting is a fun site where you can post pictures of your food recommendations. Think of Yelp but with lots of beautiful food photos and a fun community.

If you’re a Foodspotting fan, you’ll love this project! We’re going to make their cute little mascot. It’s a blue character with a camera in his hands (to take photos of food!) He’s really easy to make, it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.

What You’ll Need:

  • Cardstock – turquoise blue, dark blue, light orange, bright orange, white
  • Black pen
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Corner Punch (Optional)

With the turquoise cardstock, cut the body of the character. He’s basically a rectangle with rounded corners. You can make him however big (or small) you want. You can round off the corners with scissors or a corner punch.

With another piece of turquoise cardstock, cut out little hands for him. He has three fingers. You can cut two squares and overlap them on top of one another. Then just make one hand cut.

With a dark blue paper, cut out a D-shape for the mouth. It doesn’t have to be perfect. 😉

The light orange cardstock will be for his camera body. Cut a rectangle, then cut in it again to give it a flash. Round off the corners.

The camera lens and eyes are all circles. You can trace a dime or pencil eraser for the circles. Overlap all three pieces to make just one cut. For the eyes, use a black pen to dot the eyeballs in.

With adhesive, put all the pieces together like the above photo, and you have your very own Foodspotting mascot! Now you can take him along with you to the restaurants and snap a photo of your food WITH him! Have fun and happy Foodspotting and Crafting!
