Peeping Owl

I love to craft and although I love to make cards, I get much greater pleasure from doing 3d craft, especially if they are pressies! 
Today I thought I would share a little project that I did last week that was going to be a prototype as a gift.
Hope you like.

The box which contains the little gift. I used some of the new DSP Sweet Sorbet which is coming out soon in the upcoming promotion, Sale-A-Bration where you can get lots of free goodies.  Details soon.....

The following two pics are of the lid having been moved.  The reason for two pics is so that you can see the lovely sponge coloured card attached to the front of the box.  I loved the effect sponging three colours of SU inks, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky and then glittering them up!

Here's the little gift inside. Can you see the peeping owl!  Oh I loved putting this one together. As you can see a polystyrene flat backed ring has been covered in the gorgeous burlap ribbon and secured with pins at the back.

 I then set about decorating it using my favourite bigz flower die and little leaves embosslit then using lots of glittery bling to finish it off

Here's just a couple of pics to show him off!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.  Please feel free to comment!
Take care
