Valentine’s day is coming up fast! If you need a quick and easy little gift for some one or for your kids to hand out at class this project is perfect for you!. I LOVE all DeNami’s valentine themed owls and you can use any of them for this project. This project takes about 10 minutes to complete one but you can easily mass produce if you want to do to make them for your kids class.
First, I used my milk carton die from Lawn Fawn to cut out the box. You will need 2 pieces of the same paper and run it through you die cut machine twice to make the milk carton. To assemble the carton you can use any adhesive but I used a liquid adhesive. Leave the top of the carton open so that you can put treats or a small present in the carton. I stamped my owl and the “xoxo” on white cardstock in black ink. To color the owl, I used Copic Markers. I kept the coloring simple and didn’t do any shading because I didn’t think it was needed. I used a scalloped 1 1/2” circle punch to cut out the owl and adhered it to the carton with foam tape. I found these little clothes pins with Valentine sayings at my local craft store and used it to close the carton. TIP: for the clothes pin to hold the carton closed hold the lip of the carton and push downwards carefully. This will help the paper keep its shape and the clothes pin to keep the carton close. If you don’t do this there’s a good chance that the clothes pin will pop off! This happened to me a few times before I figured out!
As always, below is a list of the supplies that I used along with where you can purchase the supplies. Enjoy!
