{cindy's critter challenge}

Cindy, at Citrus Tree Studio challenged us this month to make a gift set that included a "critter". Is an owl a critter? I hope so!!! :) :)
I started with a metal prima box that, when purchased, was filled with prima flowers. I measured the top and cut a piece of My Mind's Eye pp to cover. I stitched down a LYB die cut, added an Owl sticker, some Caribbean twine from The Twinery, a resin prima and some buttons to complete the altered top of the little box.

{you mean the world to me.}

Next I made a little card to go along w/the box. More MME pp, pop up owl sticker, twine, some machine stitching and a sentiment stamp from Papertrey Ink complete the sweet {friend to friend} card.

Now, what's a gift box if it's not filled with chocolate, right? ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a creative, hassle-free day!!

hugs, patti

Your owls are darling (I especially like the blue one - it just pops off the orange background)! Have a wonderful 4th of July!

This gift set is the coolest! I love what you did with the box and the card. I definitely consider an owl a critter...one of the cuter critters out there for sure! :)
