By Request: How to Make Agent P

Hi everyone!  Since I have been getting a lot of email requests on how to make some of the Phineas and Ferb characters, I will be doing a few “how to” posts.  The most requested has been Perry the Platypus as Agent P (today’s post) and Isabella, which I will be posting soon.  Thank you for your patience!  :)

To make Perry- you’ll need a picture of Perry sized to fit your sandwich, parchment paper (or waxed paper), a scissors, and a Sharpie.

With the Sharpie, trace Perry’s beak on the parchment paper as shown and cut it out.

Use a very sharp and pointed knife, cut carefully around the stencil. I used a slice of cheddar here, but any kind of cheese will work.

*If using American singles see this post on how to cut it with a toothpick.

Cut the bottom of the beak off the parchment stencil, place the top part of the beak on the cheddar slice and cut out.

Place the top part of the beak on to the first cut out and you have Perry’s beak!

For the eyes, use a small oval cutter to cut out two eyes.

Cut a little off the tops of the eyes to give it a slanted look.

 Next, use a rolling pin to flatten out a piece of dark bread.

Cut out two circles for the eyes and cut a little off the top of each circle.  Cut out two small, thin strips to place over the top of Perry’s eyes.

Assemble your sandwich and arrange Perry’s features on the bread.  I trimmed the crusts off of the right and left sides of the sandwich.  Attach all of the pieces with a tiny dab of peanut butter or honey.

Place in your lunch box and Agent P is ready to go!

 If you are worried about your child’s lunch being tossed around, carefully wrap Perry with plastic wrap so that his face doesn’t shift around.  Also make sure that the sandwich box holds your sandwich securely so that it doesn’t bounce around during transport.  I love these Fuel sandwich boxes because they are sturdy, secure, and easy to open.


Childproof Agent P!

  3. Hi Susan, my boyfriend find your blog and give me the link. I’m fascinated, you are an artist in the kitchen. I’m going to subscribe to your blog and also add to favourites. I’m very happy my boyfriend discovers me your blog. :)

  4. Thank you for posting the step-by-step instructions!!! I made one for my son and daughter (my daughter didn’t want Hello Kitty, she wanted her sandwich to match her brother’s!) but they didn’t come out quite right. now I’ll try it again using your instructions. :-)

    I also appreciate you posting about how to keep Perry’s face from falling apart during transport– I’ll have to try that, too! You are so creative!

  5. Thank you SO much! I *tried* to replicate this for my kids’ first day of school and it was a disaster, so they didn’t get Perry lunches. But NOW, now I have renewed hope and will try this again!

    This is amazing! My entire family loves Phineas and Ferb, so I’ll have to give this a try someday. The method you used is very similar to crafts I’ve done in the past, so it’ll transfer really well for me.

  7. OMG! I totally love this sandwich! I am not sure if I will ever do it. But I am in love with it. hahahaha. sooo cute! I pinned it so I wouldn’t forget where I found it. Awesome. :)

  8. Great tutorial! I’ve love to include it over at Bento Blog Network. We have a new meme posted here.
