I caved! I have avoided owls for the past couple of years as they became popular. They make me think of the 70's when they were over-done in home decorating. My mother even had a macrame owl that she made that hung on a door. I happened across this blog entry and thought it was pretty darn cute and had to make it. I really like theirs with the glitter but I didn't want the glitter all over the kids when they get them so I stuck with the gold paper.
I didn't use their template, or even look at it for that matter. I like to try to make things on my own from a picture. It may be easier to use what they have. What I did was cut a strip of black cardstock 1-1/2" x 7-1/4", scored at 2-1/2, 3-1/2, and 6 inches. I used the scallop punch for the feathers and cut it to 3/4" and rolled it on a marker to make them stick out a little. The eyes I used a 1", 3/4" and 1/2" punch. The center piece is 2 x 1-1/2. I marked it in the center and didn't do a straight cut. I curved it slightly for the eyes.
This holds 2 nuggets.
CS: black & gold
Punches: scallop border, circle: 1", 3/4" & 1/2"
