Owl Boxes

Yesterday I showed you the Valentine's that I made for Logan's class mates.  Today I'll show you the teacher gifts.  When the teacher sent home the Valentine list I had no idea that Logan had so many teachers.  I guess if I thought about it I knew but until it was written for me to see it never clicked.  There's the PE teacher, art teacher, computer teacher, librarian, and more! Logan talks about these people, but I guess since he never calls them by name it never clicked in my brain.  So I made tons of these little owl boxes.  They are adorable though!!!

Monday I showed you the little owl that I made after I saw it in Heather Summers blog.  This time I stepped them upa bit.  I added wings, used silver glimmer paper for the beak and feet and added a little heart. For the box I used a retired die, Bag with Scallops. I'm sorry, I generally try not to use retired stuff, but for this project it was just so perfect!  I'm not entirely sure why SU retired that die anyway, it's a great die and I love it!  You could make a similar box with the two tags die.  Or just stick these guys to any big shot box. 

I had some incolor DSP so that's where my color choice came from.  I added a little banner tag on the side and filled the boxes with some chocolate.  I hope the teachers like it and enjoy the chocolate :)  Of course it wasn't until after I made them that Dan pointed out that he would like some Valentine treats for his office.  I'm not sure if I'll make more owls, though they're cute, but I might go for something a little different for his co workers :)  Maybe I'll whip up some for family and friends too :)
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!

These are VERY cute! And I noticed in your photo that your cutting mat looks just like mine! I wish someone would have told me not to use my heat gun over it.....
