I found a cute pillow box owl via Pinterest (where else these days?!) awhile back. Of course I had to pin it and make one of my own.
Sweet little thing; perfect for housing a little gift of somekind, like jewelry or a gift card. Maybe even a chocolate nugget or two. And so easy to make!
I used the SU! Pillow Box Die to make the box. Used various punches to make the eyes and "wings", Heart to Heart punch for the feet and the 3/4 punch to make the circles for the "body feathers" (could use a scallop die or the scallop punch as well).
Paper used was Pink Pirouette cs for the box and designer series paper in the same color for the body feathers. Little bit of bling for the twinkling eyes.
Here she is in her "nest" before being sent to my niece with a little bracelet inside for her birthday.
Here is a link: KERRY'S CRAFT BLOGwhere she has a whole bunch of colorful ones and a newly made video tutorial explaining how they are made.
