Valentine Owl

Pin It
My upline, Linda Roberts, sent me a similar owl and I just had to copy it. Isn't he cute!?  We are making these at one of my Close to My Heart classes tonight. It is a pillow box that holds a little Valentine packet of M&M's.  Yum!  Let me know if you and a couple of friends would like to learn how to make it too!  Yes, all of the pieces used the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and the Roxie Paper Packet!

Update - If you would like to give this a try on your own then here is the cutting guide:
~ All cuts are from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge ~
5 1/2" Pillow Box (pg 28)
(6) 1" circles for feathers
(2) 1 1/2" white circles for eyes
(2) 1" black circles for eyes
3" Flower for beak (pg 39)
(2) 1 1/2" ovals for wings (pg 42)
1" heart for feet (pg 26)
I added the little card to make it look more like a Valentine, but this would be a great box for any occasion!

He/She is so cute. I would love to have the directions to make them for my grandchildren. I have the Art Philosophy cartridge, and have made some holiday treat holders in the past. What fun they were to make also. I hope you can get the directions to me soon, as I will have to put them in the mail. You have such great ideas, and I like the looks of your work. Keep it up.
Thanks, Sandi
