Memory Monday – Owl Punch Flowers

I love when a product has more than one use.  While the retired Owl Punch was clearly designed to punch out and create cute little owls, it also made fantastic flowers! I created a beautiful flower planter with these flowers.  It is a bit difficult to see but I also spritzed some sparkle and  shimmer to the petals to make them stand out, as though they still have some morning dew on them.

By punching the owls body, trimming off the feet, adding a small cut halfway between the ears and overlapping the cut to create a flap/ fold (Multipurpose Glue works well to glue the fold), and then using a bone folder to curl the rounded side of the owl, you now have a flower petal.  Repeat 7 more times and add these to a small punched card stock circle, 5 for the bottom, 3 for the next layer, and you end up with a nice flower in no time.  The centre was created by punching a scallop circle and then cut it into a spiral shape.  With tweezers, wind it up, glue it up and attach it to the centre of the owl petal flower.

If this is something you would like a visual of to see how this is created, please leave me a comment.
