These owls make me giddy. I have a bunch of little jars on my craft table with Owl Bits in them…bodies, vesties, and eyeballs. I punched out a bunch of the medium circles in white and the bitty eyeballs in Espresso and Chocolate and Black. I discovered if I put that part together in a big batch that it saved a lot of trouble when it was time to finish my owls – I just reached into the eyeball jar and poof! there they were. Now when I finish a project I check the scraps of paper before I brush them into the trash – anything big enough for Owl Bits gets punched and put in the jars.

There are a couple of little punchy tricks in this card that you might not notice. One owl is sitting on branches that come from the Bird punch, but if you look carefully, the other owl is sitting on a little green patch that happens to be the wing from that Bird punch. I’m sure all of you are much smarter than me and had this figured out already, but I recently discovered that the little heart that you get from the Owl punch makes a great owl-beak. I’ll bet the punch geniuses did that on purpose.
You could make this card over and over again in so many colors…just keep an Owl Bits jar on your craft table and you’ll have Owls-in-a-Flash!
