Hi there stampers!!
This project was designed with Earth Day in mind. This adorable owl was made from some soup spoons I had and never used. I’m addicted to making these owls and I’m even working on a smaller version. These owls can be made with any Designer Series Paper to match your room decor. These owls make great shower favors and housewarming gifts as well. I’m giving one to my daughter and son-in-law, who just bought their first home!
These are quite simple to make and are done with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch! Here’s what to do to make your very own Spoon Owl:
The first thing you need is a soup spoon. I used an oval and not a round. Just a tid-bit on soup spoons, the round soup spoon are used for cream soups or bisques and the oval for consume and broths. On the bottom of the spoon you need to drill three 1/8″ holes and on the top of the spoon, one.
Place one split ring in each of the bottom three holes. These can be found at your local craft store in the beading section.
As I mentioned, you can use any Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper of choice. The photo shows the parts you’ll need using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. I punched three complete punches using two different Designer Series sheets. Make sure you have two matching wings. You won’t use all the parts, so save them for future owls. The Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (129312) only available until May 31, is perfect for this project because the sheets are 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. No need to use a 12″ x 12″ sheet this way..
Adhere the owl parts with Glue Dots as shown in the photo, For the owl’s eyes I used two Soda Pop Tops, a 1″ Circle punched from Stampin’ Up! Glitter Paper and a 3/4″ Circle punched from Basic Black Card Stock. To adhere the Soda Pop Tops to the spoon Crystal Effects was used. Dimensionals were used to pop the black circles.
Remember those three jump rings? Well, on each jump ring thread some seed beads on to wire or head pins and when finished beading, loop them through the split rings.
And, there you have a Blossom Petals Punch Spoon Owl.
Send me photos of your owl projects and remember, to “Make what you love and love what you make!”
