Sizzix Big Shot, and it cuts so many different materials. We cut pieces of cardstock, glitter cardstock, fun foam and felt to create our owls using the Primative Hearts #3.
These are a few of the Core'dinations papers we cut. Sticking with one shape made mixing and matching the pieces of our owls quite easy.
If you want your owl to have a fat top, find the balance point of the pinecone tip. Or, simply have a skinny owl by using the base for the feet.
We cut hearts in half to create additional shapes for the owls, The top part of the heart is perfect for the face, bottom part of the owl the beak. Cut the beak in half and you have ears. How easy is that? Whole hearts make cute wings that you can use one at a time, or layer for a fun look. You can also use the full hearts for feet.
So grab a few scraps of paper and fabric and your Sizzix machine and start cutting pieces for owls. This would be a fun craft to do on Thanksgiving with the whole family.
