Owl treat bag toppers for woodland animal theme baby shower.


These Owl treat bag toppers were so fun to make. I made them for my nieces woodland animal themed baby shower.  I also made acorn shaped cookies to put in them for the shower favor.  She is having twins, a girl and a boy so I thought it would be cute to make some with a mustache for the boy and then some with a bow for the girl.


I used a combination of pieces from my Sizzix owl die and fox die to make the features of the owls and I used my vine Mini 8 punch to cut the base for the owl which I folded over the top of the cellophane bags. I also tried making some mini diaper cakes also but I didn’t get a good picture of them.  The shower turned out very nice.

#Hero Arts Holiday card challenge shaker card Memory Box Tree Branch Circle


My fourth entry for the Hero Arts Holiday card challenge.  I really need to get some new Hero Arts products, I have used the Owl Christmas set on four different cards now so you can see a bunch of different things you can do with just one product. Hero Arts has some really nice products out now that I would love to get.


I decided to make this one a shaker card so I used the new Memory Box Tree Branch Circle die for the shaker portion of the card. I cut around it with a circle die and then a thin frame around the circle.  I filled it with some glitter and sequins.  I colored my owl with colored pencils and then fussy cut it out and mounted it on top of the peace sentiment which is also part of the Owl Christmas stamp set. I mounted the shaker portion on top of some matching polka dot paper and then added it to the front of my card base.  The card is a square card about 4.5 by 4.5 inches.  I tied a little pink twine bow for the front of the owl.  I finished the card off with some peacock liquid pearls on a couple of the polkadots.

Another entry into the Hero arts holiday card challenge.  I used the same Owl Christmas stamp set and I also used the Holly Flourish background stamp which I heat embossed using clear powder. It gives it a nice tone on tone look. I used my copic markers to color the owls and then fussy cut them and raised them up on dimensional stickers. Some red sequins in the corner mimic the Holly berries.

My second card for the Hero Arts Holiday cards entry.  I used the Owl Christmas stamp set, it’s an older set but Owls are still the in thing.  I also stamped the background with some of the snowflakes included in the set and then embossed them with silver embossing powder.  The pink hills are from the stitched hillside pop up die from Lawn Fawn.  I love that I can trim off the pop up tabs and use them as regular hillsides.  I love doing Christmas cards in nontraditional Christmas colors.  I framed it all with stitched rectangles from Avery Elle.
