Part 2: A Wise Old Owl!!!

Not sure about the wise bit but I'm definitely becoming an old bird! LOL!
This is not my idea the original idea came from Angie at Chic'n'Scratch. But I have modified it slightly to fit in with the punches we have available from Stampin' Up.
These are the punches you will need, all available from Stampin' Up and if not I'm sure there is one close to the size I use.My punches are from EK Success which are the same company that make Stampin' Up's Punches.

The 2" Circle I have used is a Woodware Punch, but I'm sure a nestie would work just as well.

Right, Lets get started. This is the page from My Punch Book, which is filling up gradually, (I'll show it another day).

These are the bits and pieces you need to punch out:

1 x 2" Cicle from Chocolate Chip

1 x Tab Punch from Chocolate Chip

2 x Scallop Ovals from Creamy Caramel

2 x 1" circles from Creamy Caramel

2 x 3/4" from Whisper White

2 x 1/4" from Black

2 flowers from Boho Blossom

Ink all the edges of the various pieces. Layer up the 1", 3/4" and 1/4" inch circles as follows in the next few photos.

Then position as follows on the Tab Punch out

Cut the smaller flower as follows

I think these photos show it better than I could explain.

Then stick to the back of the head (Tab Punchout)

Using a white gel pen draw a little V to look like little feathers.

This is the Head complete. Attach three sticky tabs to the back.

Stick the wings (Scallop Ovals) to the body (2" Circle)

Then stick on the head.

Using the larger Boho Blossom flower cut as follows:

Then stick to the back of the body, on the bottom edge.

Add a little detail to the wings and chest to look like feathers and The Owl is now complete.

Isn't she / he adorable. Perfect for any Teacher.

I used mine on the front of a card adn on the front of a note book / mini album

Hopefully over the next few days I'll share some other ideas I had for my satchel and its contents.
Thanks for all your fab comments.
