Going to the Birds.... an Owl anyway....

I seen the cutest owls over on Pinterest that so inspired me!  Well, mine is NO WHERE close to what I seen except for the general idea.

I may still try this as a Valentine owl but I'm getting a kick out of this guy.  He is BIG, 7" tall.  I cut (using my Cricut and Rosettes cartridge) 2  11" strips for the rosette.  I used an idea that I seen somewhere to make my rosette which helped a lot in holding the rosette in place to add the circles (front and back).

I got out my largest Creative Memories circle cutting template to hold down the rosette while I added hot glue then my top 2 1/2" scalloped circle die cut (Spellbinders).

Now, isn't this just slick??  After the glue cooled I flipped the rosette over and added a 3" dark brown circle to the back for more support.

I cut the hearts using the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and assorted circle punches and even a Heartfelt Creations Leaf die (cut down) to make the beak.

My inspiration owl is found on the Rubberfunatics blog.  I'm betting her's is half the size of this one but I think I can hang mine in the window.  What do you think of this fellow?
