Exploding Owl Box

I am excited to share with you today an exploding owl box that I made for my niece. She loves owls and I just learned how to make these boxes so I went ahead and made this for her for Christmas. I used the Gift Box Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. The box size is 3.25x3.25x3.25, just follow the directions that come with the board for that size box. It is super easy. I made my own lid. The measurements for the lid are 6 1/4 by 6 1/4 paper scored at 1 1/2 on all sides. I used the Owl maker Stampin Up Punch to make all the owls and found the awesome sentiment online and printed it out and used my lacey squares spellbinders dies to cut them out. This is the result...

As always, thanks for stopping by!!!

Make it Crafty Challenge

Today I am posting a Halloween scene I colored with two Make it Crafty images for the current MIC Challenge. I combined them to create a spooky scene. Not too happy with how the moon turned out. I over did it with stickles and glossy accents lol. It was fun coloring this up, but it took forever!!! I will eventually make it into a card. Had a relaxing weekend so I was happy to get some coloring in. Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend for those of you in the States!

Here is the Halloween Spooky Scene:

Have a great week!!!!
