What a hoot Gift tag
To make this adorable owl tag you will need to start with.
Spellbinders™ Wizard™ and the S4-271 Nested Owl die templates.
S4-072 Flower Creations and
S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG
and a piece of off white, brown, black and white cardstock.
I started by folding a piece of 4 x 8″ off white cardstock in half. I taped the die template so that the folded edge of the paper is inside of the cutting edge of the die template, as shown in the photo. Cut/emboss in the Spellbinders™ Wizard™ to create a shaped card. I then inked my edges with Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Fluid chalk ink.
Next I cut out two owls, one out of off white cardstock and one out of the brown.
Ink the edges of the off white owl with Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Fluid chalk.
Fold the brown in half and mark as shown. Cut out the pieces as shown and ink edges with Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Fluid chalk ink.
Fold the brown in half and mark as shown. Using scissors, hand cut the pieces as shown and ink edges with Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Fluid chalk ink.
Adhere brown cut out pieces as shown.
Next cut out two S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG #1 (#1 is the smallest) out of white and one out of brown. Ink the edges.
With the S4-072 Flower Creations One, cut one flower from off white cardstock (as shown above) and two large centers out of black cardstock (as shown below).
Cut the brown in half and adhere to “eyes” as shown. Mark the wrong side of flower as shown and cut. Ink edges of petal that is now the owl’s nose.
Using SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVE by 3L 3D Foam Squares, adhere eyes to face and with another 3D Foam Square add
nose to face, placing just under eyes as shown.
Adhere the owl to card.
Come back next week to see this fun t-shirt and two more projects using these
S4-271 Nested Owls.
