It’s that time of year again when that note from school comes home and you think to yourself – there is no way it’s Valentine’s Day already! Before you read the note you already know it means work so you prepare yourself!
Just kidding….this is the note I look forward to – it’s right up my alley and I love thinking of cute things to do. I usually go to the Silhouette library for inspiration and this time I found a ton of cute things (of course). It seemed like a good idea to ask my daughter if she liked this cute owl until I remembered how many I was going to have to make. With two daughters (because apparently you can’t do it for just one…that would be a bad mommy..ha ha) I had to make 85! Yes I know that’s insane but I already committed to this little guy!
Here is what the pattern looks like on the Silhouette but there are a ton of patterns online you can find and cut out…or better yet just get a Silhouette!
The beauty of the Silhouette is there is no cutting! Now they need a machine that will glue all the parts together…maybe that’s just a little lazy? I call it efficient.
I love this pattern because the head folds over so it looks like he (or she) is holding the candy. I used a lot of coordinating paper and then just mixed and matched.
For the back I collected some Valentine sayings that applied to owls and printed them on Avery shipping labels. If you have a Silhouette you can print the saying on your printer and then cut out the shape but but I forgot to do that before I cut them all out.
All the sayings I used will be at the end of this post.
Owl sayings I used:
- Owl be yours!
- Owl always think you’re sweet
- I will “owl-ways” love you!
- I will “owl-ways” be there for you!
- Owl be your Valentine!
- Be my sweethoot!
- You’re a hoot!
- I will “owl-ways” be your friend!
- Hoot, hoot! I think you’re cute!
- Owl be your friend forever!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Don’t forget to give everyone you love an extra hug and kiss on the 14th.
