Wow! I actually made an owl with the Owl Builder Punch!! Lately I seem to have used it to make a turkey, penquin, ghost, skunk, fox, etc – everything BUT an owl!! But this time he gets to be an owl, and not just an owl, but an owl leprechaun! Check out this video turtorial on how to make this project from my St. Patrick's Day treat holder class – I hope you can join me at the upcoming Easter treat holder class! Here is the video:
The topper is made with the Banner Framelits – I laid the framelit just above the fold to make a "tent" for the top of our bag.
The owl's hat is made with the Ticket Builder Punch and the Small Oval Punch. The shamrock idea – and the wings too, came from Sandy Mathis, you can see her owl here.
Here is the chart that my stampers used in the class to help them remember how to build the owl.
I colored one of our Basic Rhinestones green with a permanent green marker to embellish that hat.
Here are the supplies you need to make your leprechaun owl!
