Punched Owl Notebook

Owl notebooks made with Stampin Up punches.
My friend Toni made a couple of these little beauties and brought them along to our weekend away, of course she made them for Peejay who collects owls and from the minute I saw them I loved them so here is my version of them.
I bought the notebook and covered it in a brown card then added papers and ribbon.
Tools used
Stampin Up; Punches Round Tab & Scallop Oval. (head, wings and belly)
Nesabilities; Round Scallop (body)
Circle Punches; 3/4" and 1/2" (eyes)
5 petal flower punch (feet & beak)


So after making one there was no stopping me and I found these sleepy looking goggle eyes and they work perfectly.
