My cousin's high school graduation party was on Sunday and I wanted to give her a gift card to Bed, Bath, & Beyond so she can find some fun new dorm room accessories when she goes off to college.
Of course I wanted a little something to hold the gift card, and I had remembered making these mini pizza boxes at one of my stamp club meetings and I knew it would be perfect!
I've seen these little graduation owls floating around blog land, and I couldn't wait to make one of my own to add to the top of the box!
Paper: Pacific Point, Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Celebrations DSP
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Dimensionals, non-SU! red ribbon
Tools: Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Two-Step Owl punch, Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die
Cut the strip of paper down to size and then adhere the "cap" on top.
**Additional notes: You'll notice that in my owl with the finished project up above, I snipped off the owl's feet and replaced them with Tangerine Tango color. I glued the feet down first and then placed the owl's body on top of it. It took a little extra work, but I like the result. I also free-hand cut the mini triangle for the owl's beak. I also took a white piece of paper and rolled it up tight around a thin piece of dowel and then tied a ribbon around it. I adhered it with a couple of glue dots.
Thanks for visiting!
Hope you come back soon!
