I am back with something creative to share with you. I have seen these owl pillow boxes on blogs and Pinterest (my new addiction for awhile now) and have had them saved in my favorites to make. I first saw them here on Lynn's blog and then here, here, here, here, and here. So I just took a little from each to create my own.
This week on Cutting Cafe, the DT gets to pick their favorite set/files to give away and Regina let me choose 2 files to give away as I am using 2 for my project. I am using the Assorted Pillow Box set and Assorted Heart Borders set.
Is this cute or what?! I love how it turned out. I named her Owl-ivia. Ü Now she just needs her tummy filled with chocolate and she is ready to give as a Valentine gift.
A few details:
I glued the bottom end shut with Tombow's Multi Liquid Glue so that I would have to worry about goodies falling out.
Next time I will make the "wings" a bit bigger. I used an oval punch, but think they need to be a bit bigger and this was the biggest one I had.
I scrunched the ends of the heart border up to give a little dimension.
The beak is the bottom of a cut heart.
Love how my crocheted flowers worked for the eyes! The "eyelids" were attached with Tombow's Foam Tabs. The tiny foam tabs were the right size for going around the outside edge.
I want to thank Regina for letting me be a part of her awesome DT! I had a blast and am sad to leave, but I won't be a stranger to her blog and have a TON of files that need played with.
Now for a chance to win the 2 Cutting Cafe files I used. All you need to do is leave a comment. I will draw a name Saturday morning.
