"What are you working on?" my husband asked. "A St. Patrick's Day owl." "A what??" I know it does sound a little odd. But I was determined. My owl is totally inspired by these owls by Rachel Tessman. She made hers with ready made cards from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin Kit. So cute!
For mine, I used a strip of 4" by 10 1/2" paper folded in half. I used circle dies to cut the top and the belly piece on each side for the wings. The beak is a one inch square cut into a triangle.
The tags are available as a download below.
I love this vintage placecard! I was lucky to get one of them. I found it at one of my favorite etsy shops: Puffadonna. She's not necessarily St. Patricks, which is kind of great - that way I can use her for something else, too. I think this is perfect as a little something for a friend.
If you would like to see how to make the felt shamrock, check out this post from last year.
