Whooooo loves you!
Welcome back! So...I just HAD to create some owl pillow boxes for today's post! When I told MFT way back in June that I wanted to create a pillow box, Jody showed me some super cute ones made into owls. They are an old stand by for pillow boxes, but I wanted to share my version that includes Homespun Hearts, and Hearts & Stitches stamp sets along with the new Square Pillow Box and Rustic Hearts Die-namics.
Here is my sweet girl owl. You could easily add a little flower or bow over her ear to step her up a bit.
Here is a view of the underside... and how the feet are attached.
This little happy brown owl has his arms a little different... holding a little banner!
The Happy Valentine's day! sentiment from Homespun Hearts was curved on the block before stamping... then I trimmed it with the curve by hand. This little fellow is sporting the heart/dot image from Hearts & Stitches on his tummy.
Ok... Here is their little guy. (Imagine how cute these would be as baby shower favors!) Oh, I should mention that I just hand trimmed the beaks from an orange heart I stamped. Also almost everything is sponged lightly with Kraft Ink.
I double stamped the heart row image for a fuller look on his belly. This would be fun in two different colors too. Just a little note about the belly sections... I actually ran the stamped Rounded Banner STAX image through the die cutting machine with the Square Pillow Box Die-namice to get the right score line to cut off the bottom.
There is a nice close up of his eyes. I've seen so many variations of owl eyes... I combed through every MFT Die-namics in my stash to find the perfect everything. These were so wonderfully fun to create!
Here are the dies that I used in addition to the new Square Pillow Box Die-namics. The supply links will show the sets these came from but I wanted to show you each component.
The wings are cut then I used the same oval to re-cut to create a wing like shape.
Ok... one little card to finish off the teaser projects. After spending the day owl making, I wanted to create a quick and clean card.
A fun trick with the buttons is to try to line up the tread part of the buttons with a single stitch.
Here is the inside...
The only sentiment is on the inside... I often forget that that's OK. LOL!
Well, that wraps it up for this month's MFT teasers of Homespun Hearts, and Hearts & Stitches stamp sets, Square Pillow Box andRustic Hearts Die-namics! PLEASE let me know if I can answer any questions. I'll answer them in the comments section.
SOOoooooo... are you ready to grab some goodies?!?!?
Thanks again for all the wonderful comments and thanks for poppying by, friends!
