Let's "Owl" Give Thanks For Paper Crafting!

Paper Owls Using Decorative Punches

These little cuties have "owl" gathered together to give thanks for fashionable attire for Thanksgiving Dinner (hee hee)!

What a fun and easy paper-crafts project, and it would be great to do with the kids during the holiday weekend. Much thanks to Linda Knowles for her clever inspiration for this project.

The owl "body" is actually a Pillow Box (die-cut in the Big Shot) decorated with simple punched shapes from card stock and patterned paper.  I used the gorgeous Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! and coordinating card stock in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Calypso Coral.

Paper Owl Big Shot Project

Working from the bottom up, simply punch "feet" using the 5-Petal Flower punch, "feathers" using the 1" Circle punch, "beak" using the Heart to Heart punch, "wings" using the Large Oval punch, and "eyes" using the 1/2" and 1" Circle punches.

For the "girl" owls, I gave them cute bows tied from Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon. These would be darling in a Christmas theme as well and would make cute holiday decorations or stocking stuffers with a yummy treat or small gift inside.

Hope y' owl have a super duper Thanksgiving weekend!
xoxo
