Cut it Up Challenge #18 - Mother's Day

Happy Friday my friends. Thanks for stopping by my blog for another Cut it up Blop Challenge.

Cut it up Challenge #18 - Create a project for Mother's Day.

My Mom loves birds so to make something completely different for her other than a card, which I already have made, I decided to make a home decor project.

I saw a cute little wooden owl decoration in a craft store this week and my inspiration grew from there.

She is made of chip board and card stock and a little bit of floral wire for her feet.

Here's how I did it:
Hoot n' Holler cart
Owl cut at 10 1/4" - first on chipboard then from Black Recollections CS.
Shift layer was cut 3 times, 1-pink, 1-orange, and 1-yellow.
Layer cut 2 times, first in green then in yellow

Doodle Charms cart
Flower on pg 91 cut at 3" - pink and blue
I used a left over circle from the owl eye as the yellow dot on the blue part of the flower.

I used perfect pearls in black for the eyes and dots between the feathers on her belly.
I used perfect pearls in ice white for the dots on the beak and the yellow eye. I traced around those dots with my black zig pen.

I used the black zig pen and the white gelly roll pen on the flower.

I made the owl's feet using brown floral wire and use a left over piece for the flower stem. I hot glued these on to my owl.

For the center of the owl's eyes I use some black oval beads and hot glued them into place.

Yes she really does stand up and I know my Mom is going to love her.

Hop on by the Cut It Up Blog to see more inspiring projects today
