Santa Owl Pails

Hello & Happy Sunday, friends!!

Hope your day is going well so far!
I had a great day yesterday with my stamping girls! Time really flies when your having fun! It was good to see them and we got our Christmas Get Together on the calendar for in a few weeks! Yipppeee!! :)

Here is a picture of my gang :)

Anyways, today I wanted to share with you these awesome little pails that I picked up at Micheal's last winter when I was still in Joplin. I wasn't sure at the time what I was gonna do with them and one day the thought of making the Owl Punch into a Santa Owl came to mind and as they say....the rest is history!

I wrapped the pails in a dsp from Hobby Lobby only up to where the handles are on the sides. Also punched some red cardstock & more dsp and put on the lid. Then I took white cardstock and punched it with the Scallop Circle Punch and ran it thru the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots EF for alittle somethin' somethin'! LOL I punched out 16 red owls and glued on the googlie eyes that came from Micheal's. I punched the vest out with that extremely heavy glitter cardstock that Micheal's sells and glued it on the Owl body. I then punched out 16 Wild Wasabi stems for the Owl to sit on and added dimensionals to the backside to adhere to the white Scallop Punch. Next I had a pack of Jolee's Santa hat sticker's that I got last year out in Joplin and added those on the Owl's head. Filled with 5 or 6 bite sized Snickers and called them "AWESOME"!!
I just loved them! What do you think??
