Looking for a cute idea for using your Two-Step Owl punch? This simple design incorporates a fun trick I learned at the last Stampin' Up! Convention for creating an easy banner.
While my banner dried, I punched two strips of Real Red card stock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (119275) and attached them behind a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I cut a branch for my owl, using the Big Shot (113439) and the Little Leaves sizzlit die (114511), trimming off a few leaves to make a little room.
I used Early Espresso and Whisper White card stock for the owl body and more of the Play Date DSP for his belly and the heart. Once I had the owl assembled and sitting on his branch, I attached this entire piece to a strip of the Play Date DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Using the Handheld 1/16" Circle Punch (101227) I made a hole on each end of the DSP strip, then threaded the Hemp Twine through the holes and secured the ends with tape. I used Liquid Glue to adhere this piece to the Marina Mist card stock. To finish the piece, I gently lifted up the lower portion of the Crumb Cake piece and added a few Stampin' Dimensionals underneath. I wanted to secure the banner as well, so I added a tiny snip of a Dimensional behind each piece.
And there you have it! A fun owl with a fun mini banner. Have a question about this project? Just ask me in the comment section below.
