Outrageously Cute Owls - Coredinations

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great week.  Today I wanted to share with you a project I did a while ago for Core'dinations.  I love the dot papers that Core'dinations makes, such a fun texture.  These little pillowboxes are just so cute and fun.

I had my niece Lili and one of her friends over for a playdate so that we could create these.  The girls of course loved it.  They then proceeded to fill their little pillow boxes with other diecuts they had made.

Owl Box Supplies:

One three inch circle, cut in half, for the wings.  Again, sand this piece for extra texture and interest.

Two black one and 1/2 inch circles for the pupils,

Sixteen or so one inch circles for the feathers.  Don't worry if they don't punch perfectly, we are going to layer them so you can hide your mistakes.  hee hee
