Owls from the Bigz L "Pillow Box" Die from Stampin' Up!

Hello once again lovely Bloggers!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to the Pink Ladies quarterly training last Sunday and had a blast! I was asked last minute if I would do an "Inspiration Station" as someone sadly had to pull out... and I sad YES! (why oh why do I put myself under so much pressure?!!) Anyway, it seems I did some of my best work whilst under pressure this time, and that's a first for me!
I chose to use the Pillow Box die from Stamping Up as it's often overlooked as a little boring and limited. Well, I hope after you see the pictures that is more than just a box, it can be almost anything you want it to be...
Above, you can see a few of my owl designs. I did a Boy in blue, Girl in pink (including eyelashes!), A Santa, a Pumpkin... and I will post pictures tomorrow of the Bat owl I made. I will also post how I made them so you can do these too!
I also roped my Boss into the equation... and asked him to cut down some twisted ficus branches that overhang his garden so I could make a wonderful display for them all to sit in :)

I love the idea that you can fill them with sweets, money or a present for birthdays, new baby arrivals, Christmas, Halloween, or just to say "I haven't forgotten you!!"

I'd love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment, it really does make my day to hear from you.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or you want to place an order or book a wonderful fun workshop in your own home, especially with the new hostess benefits, it's not to be missed - ask me more...

Thanks for stopping by today, looking forward to hearing from you!
