Sorry, just couldn't resist titling my post like that! I have a friend who works next door to me and she is super sweet, and today is her birthday! Her nickname is "Hootie" and she loves owls. I've done some research, and found a link to a tutorial to make an owl with a styrofoam ball. I took a few pictures to show you some of the tips I came up with as well. I started by cutting what I felt was more than enough feathers, not! I started with 60 turquoise, and 30 fuschia feathers, but had to add another 20 to the turquoise pile. But, the ingenious part (can you tell I'm pretty proud of myself?!) was to use my Stocking Stuffer die from Stampin' Up to cut the feathers, look!
link and she definitely has more pics! Ok, are you ready to see the final project? I'll let you know what Shelly named her later!
