Christmas Owl Paper Punch Art
Paper punch art is a wonderful way to use up those scraps we tend to collect and just can't bring ourselves to throw away! :-) This Santa owl is one of many great Christmas card making ideas for using your scraps.
This guy is too stinkin' cute, and he goes everywhere!
- Stamp Set: Welcome Christmas (118736-w/120597-c)
- Two-Step Owl Extra-Large Punch (118074)
- Two-Step Bird Extra-Large Punch (117191
- Word Window Large Punch (119857)
- Cardstock: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half for the base
- Cardstock scraps: Real Red, Whisper white, Early Espresso, Basic Black, More Mustard, Old Olive
- Ink: Real Red Classic Ink
- uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (105021)
Punch the body of the owl in Real red, then the middle part of the owl and the large circles in white for the eyes and the pom-pom at the top of the hat. Punch the smaller circles in Basic Black and along the bottom of the body in Basic Black to get the feet.
Cut the leaves from the Bird punch in Old Olive, and the hat from the leaf of the Bird punch in Real Red.
Using the Word Window Punch, punch the white fur of the santa hat out. This piece will be too large, so using the same punch trim one edge off to the size you need.
I used a strip of Early Espresso cardstock to make the branch, and then applied the leaves over and under it.
I used a strip of Basic Black cardstock for the belt, and a small strip for the inside of the buckle. Cut out a small square of More Mustard to form the buckle.
Use the Signo gel pen on the eyes, and once it dries assemble your Santa. Stamp your greeting, perch your Santa on the branch, and you're done!
