Boo Whoo Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to the Boo Whoo Blog Hop!!

***UPDATE*** Whoot Whoot ~ Just found out that I made My Cricut Craft Room's Design Team!!!



Thank you for joining us at My Cricut Craft Room's Boo Whoo Blog Hop!!  Today's sponsor is Erica's Craft Room.  Please comment on all of the blogs in the hop to be entered to win the prizes:  Teresa Collins Chic and Scary Cricut Cartridge and Pumpkin Carvings Cricut Cartridge!!  You must be a follower of My Cricut Craft Room in order to win.

Here is a complete line up in case you get lost along the way!!





And now on to my project:
Real owls creep me out BIG TIME, but paper owls are super cute.  Maybe it is the head turning thing??  Maybe it is the screeching (or hooting )?  Maybe it is the size of their eyes?  I am not really sure, but there is something about owls that creeps me out.....

I almost did not make owls for my banner, but these ended up so cute!!!!


I used the owl from Create A Critter and sized it to 4 inches.  I used my Gypsy for easier cutting.  I cut out my owls out of brown Kraft cardstock.

This Gypsy layer has the Owl layer pieces on it.  I cut out this layer twice using a total of 4 different coordinating papers.

The third layer held the rest of the Owl layer pieces on it.  I cut out the branches in brown cardstock.  Later I  decided to alternate which way the branches faced.

I used black stickles to glam up the eyelashes, noses and chest feathers on my owls.  I used orange stickles for the claws.  I used brown cross grain ribbon and my Crop-A-Dile to attach the banner pieces together!

What is something that freaks you out in real life, but is totally cute made out of paper??

Thank you for stopping by!!  Your next stop in the hop is HOLLY!

Your banner is super cute, love owls too, but I do love real owls. We have one that flies around our neighborhood almost every evening and I always listen for him and miss him when he doesn't come around. lol
