Valentines day is right around the corner, no better time to get your little Valentine treasures all ready to give.
This free template is available on my blog at www.deenarutter.typepad.com .
Here I will show you how I used the template to personalize my little owl.
I used some paper from my SCOOT collection as well as the template.
Open up the paper you want to use. I used SCOOT-hills-white for the box.
Place the pillow box template and make a clipping mask.
Place the other paper you want to use for the wings. I used SCOOT-dots-white.
Make a clipping mask with the wings too.
Place the rest of the images as layers on your canvas.
I put my owl face directly onto my pillow box.
Get scissors, glue, scoring tool, pencil, and ribbon.
Cut around images.
Trace box template on back side of pillow box.
Score where you traced and crease.
Glue flap onto the inside of the owl.
Glue wings onto the back of the owl.
Punch a small hole through the top of the pillow box.
Thread the ribbon through and tie at the top.
Fill pillow box from the bottom with your goodies.
Flaps will fold right up into place if creased correctly.
Thanks for checking out this little tutorial. Personalize your owls and add them to the DHD gallery!
