I'm not really into alot of punch art, but while thumbing through one of my Stampin' Success magazines, I came across this cute owl made up of all Stampin' Up! punches! This awesome creation was submitted to an art contest by Lyssa Zwolanek of Watertown, Wisconsin. Soooo cute! I knew I wanted to make one of these cuties! I'm not sure if Lyssa has a blog or not, but just wanted to acknowledge her for the inspiration! The punches used are: Round Tab (owl face), scallop circle (cut in half to make the wings), 1 3/8" circle (body), 5 petal flower (cut to make the beak), Trio Flower (feet), half inch and 1/4" circle punches (eyes). I typed the sentiment on my computer (David Walker font that I bought from 2 Peas) and punched it out using the large oval punch and layering it using the scallop oval punch.
I attached this cute owl on my french fry box (an XL Sizzix die) using some cute DP that I bought from Pineapple Cove (at Kahala Mall). I made 2 of these boxes to thank 2 of my special friends - Linda and Kyoko! They are some of the most generous ladies out there, always caring, always sharing and I just had to make a special thank you for them...their favorite color is purple and I must say that this owl looks pretty cute in purple, don't you think??
