Rosita Pet

She's a caring & creative artist that always puts her sweet skills to use.

Rosita wears her heart on her sleeve and follows it wherever it wants to take her. She is the heart of the group, when someone is down, she is there to pick them up. But sometimes her schemes, though with the best inventions at heart, often go awry. Rosita also has quite an artistic flair and is always putting her talent to good use; from painting, designing clothes, to her speciality- baking sweet treats. She loves all her artistic endeavors, but her friends love tasting her latest baked goodies and everyone agrees that her Pan de Muerto is the best in Muertown.

CORA

Rosita has a cat named Cora (short for corazon, the Spanish word for heart). Cora and Rosita found each other one day while they were both lost. Being an alley cat before exhausting all 9 of her lives, Cora has always been independent and cantankerous. Being cared for by Rosita has been a big change for Cora and there are some growing pains in this relationship, but Cora has come to love her new friend. Rosita dates on Cora and loves having her try her latest recipe (which Cora is more than happy to oblige) or have her try on the latest costume she made for her (this she obliges less).

Putting nature first is second nature.

Lupita has made it her mission to help nature bloom in their world and believes that making a spiritual connection with nature is the key. She often experiments with ancient Aztec spells and meditation to help her connect with nature, but she also experiments with more traditional means like removing litter from flower beds. Of course, what good is a flower bed with no flowers? Luptia creates beautiful paper flowers and plants them everywhere she goes, making Muertown more beautiful one flower at a time.

Marigold

Lupita has to Xolo puppy named Marigold or "Goldie" for short, that was given to her by an Aztec girl to help Lupita never lose her way while exploring nature. The ancient Aztecs believed that Xolo dogs would lead spirits through the afterlife, but since Lupita is already right where she needs to be, Marigold is happy digging up Lupita's flower beds and chasing Rosita's cat. Since Xolo dogs are mostly hairless, Lupita helps Marigold stay warm by giving her a coat of paper flower pedals, making her look as much a four legged flower as a dog.

Bibi Pose
Bibi Pet

Bringing her unique sound to Muertown.

Bibi is the new girl and plans to rock Muertown. She is the guitarist and lead singer of the Mariachi-Rock band "Pozole". She's tough as nails and never has a problem speaking of mind her mind. Despite her spiky (literally) exterior she always keeps her friends close and will do all she can to protect their feelings. So if you mess with her or her friends, you better look out!

Coco

Bibi has a pet muertosaur named Coco (Spanish word for coconut and slang for head) that wandered in to the Muertoons' treehouse one day. Coco was Bibi’s number one fan from the very first moment he met her, but Bibi had to get past her secret fear of reptiles. After Tio Rico tried to claim him so that he could turn him into a pair of boots, she rescued Coco and they’ve been rocking out ever since.

Her small size doesn't get in her way of trying her hardest.

That red blur that just invaded your personal space is Rubi, an energetic ball of non-stop activity. She loves to compete and despite being small for her age, she will take on even the biggest competitors, especially her big brother, Danny. Her favorite sports are soccer and softball, but she loves all sports & even made it on the boy's football team just to show that she could. Recently she took up extreme sports after Danny dared her to jump his skateboard off a perilous ramp no one else would. Her competitiveness makes her a natural at sports but she can turn anything in to a completion. Even though she tries too hard to be the best thing she does, all that really matters is that she is already the best at being a friend.

TORTUGA

Rubi has a pet tortoise named Tortuga (the Spanish word for tortoise), or "Torta" for short. Tortuga was the mascot for the rival team, the Death Valley Tortugas, but they abandoned him after losing to Rubi and her team, not liking that they they were represented bu such a slow creature. Rubi love to play games with Tortuga but because he is so slow, a simple game of fetch can take days. Despite this, he has good qualities; such as storing sports equipments on his shell, making a nice seat for Rubi to glide on, he's even round enough to substitute as a ball, but his best quality is being a loyal friend.

Gabi Pose
Gabi Pet

Viewing the world in her own way.

Though the world might see Gabi as "different", it's because she sees the world differently than everyone else. She looks at the world through the filter of her vast imagination and processed through her keen intellect. Gabi is often found with her nose in a book because to her, books are portals into other worlds. Her keen imagination combined with her knack for engineering makes Gabi quite an inventor. Though because she is so imaginative, most of her inventions don't always work how one would expect. Despite her quirks, her friends love her for her adventurous spirit and ability to incite a new way of looking at everyday ordinary experiences.

TECHOLOTE

Gabi has a pet clockwork owl that she made named Techolote (combining the word tech with tecolote, a Spanish word for owl), or "Techy" for short. Before she met Rosita and her other friends, Gabi was a very lonely and had a hard time making friends because she is so different. So one day she decided to make a friend of her own out of wood, gears, and paper from her books. It is powered by all the love that she kept stored up in her lonely heart. Since Techolote was made by Gapi, they share a very similar personality, but he also suffers from the occasional glitch.

Mexican Tissue Paper Flowers

What you´ll need to get started: 8-10 sheets of brightly colored tissue paper per flower, Scissors, twist ties, pipe cleaners, ribbon and/or wire.

Step 1

Decide the colors and pattern for your flower and how many sheets you want to use. The more sheets you use the thicker and fluffier your flower will be. I chose seven sheets of red, orange and pink.

Step 2

Layer your paper neatly and begin to fold it accordion style from the short end.

Your folds should be about 1/2 inch to an inch wide, but honestly this is a very forgiving craft so don´t stress if it´s not perfect.

When you´ve finished folding you should have a long strip of tissue paper that looks like this:

Step 3

Next you´re going to trim the ends. This will determine how the “petals“ of your flower look. You can just trim the corners off to make rounded petals or you can try pinking shears or scalloped scissors for a more ruffle-y effect.

Step 4

Now you want to fold your long strip of tissue paper in half to find the middle.Then unfold and snip a little notch in each side right at the fold. Be careful not to cut all the way through your paper strip or you’ll be making two small flowers instead of one big one!.

Step 5

Use a twist tie, ribbon, a pipe cleaner, or apiece of wire to wrap around the center of your tissue paper at the notches. Bunch it together and twist tightly. This will be the stem of your flower or what you will use to attach your flower to something else (i.e. a dalrod for large flowers or pencil for small flowers).

Step 6

Now carefully unfold the tissue paper one layer at a time separating and shaping as you go to create petals. Be careful that you don’t get in a hurry to see your pretty flower or you may tear the tissue paper.

You can scrunch & fluff as you go to get the look you want.

To give your flower a little more rounded shape on top you can squeeze the bottom together a little.

Step 7

And you’re finished!
