- It is really not that difficult, once you have the template working for you. :) Please click on the word 'template' to start creating your own little owl gift box. I printed it twice, cut one into different pieces and I had one on my table to look at and smile :).
I saw this owl on a German blog from Miri-D a while ago and it always stuck with me. Thanks so much for sharing this template with so many of us Miri. Cupcakes and owls are just the best. I can't wait to create some more of them. Have fun with yours!
- I used the textured Early Espresso Stampin Up card stock for the layout of the owl.
- I used my Stampin Up scallop circle die #2 for the eyes and rolled it through teh Big Shot. For the smaller size circles I used the SU circle punch for inside the eyes.
- The basic grey corduroy buttons that I used for the eyes are also from Stampin Up. (#114345 - $3.89 for 24 beautiful buttons. Thye are in the clearance rack of the Stampin Up online store. Before they were $13.50. Stampin Up gives us lots of new and exciting products, but sometimes the old ones are not 'old fashion' to me at all :)
- There is the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up (#124003 - $13.50) that I used for the wings and it's little belly and cute eyes.
- There is a little tie that I created with the '3/8 inch Ruffled Pool Party' SU ribbon to close this little gift box. (#122975 - $13.50 for 10 yards of the sweetest ribbon)
All that to say. I used the recipe from the lovely Paper Players #71 theme Challenge to dress up my little owl. They encouraged us to use 3 different patterned papers (check), 2 ribbons (check), at least one punch (check) and a sprinkling of glitter (check) I love how Anne Marie came up with that last line. She is so fun and inspiring.
Well.. I gotta go .. I have some lunch that I need to make to fill some hungry tummies. Have a beautiful rest of your day and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions or little notes. They really make my day.
