A lunch bag!
I used a brown lunch bag, but now that I think about it, a white lunch bag would have been nice too. AND I had those on hand. Oh well! The brown bags were $.39 cents each, from Michael's Crafts.
I guess you could use solid paper too! I spent about 15 minutes ,in the paper aisle, at Michael's Crafts, and selecting patterned papers that color coordinated together. I cut them in strips about 3 x 12.
Then, I used my scalloped ruler to created the feathery look.
I used my flower cheese cuter to trace paper, making eyelids/eyelashes. My circle cutter created the eyes. I adhered buttons to make the eyes pop out a little more. Finally, I cut a triangle for her nose. Hot glue everything, on to the bag, the way you like and walaa! She was looking a little plain. I wanted to attach a hair bow, to her, but I didn't have any I was willing to part with. I did have 4 daisies left over though, from another project, so I use those instead.I owl-bsolutely LOVE the outcome! Colorful, girly, and fun! Inside were 3 "Mix NOT Match" socks from justice, shaped like a cupcake and the party invitation.
