Thankful for a Break!

It has been such a long time since I have been on here. During the school year, I do not find the time to create as I would like. I thought team teaching would lessen my work responsibilities, but instead it has increased. I am thankful for this needed break and an opportunity to join in on the November Papertrey's Blog Hop. Here is the inspirational photo:

I am planning on having some friends over for a little holiday get together. I want to have a holiday owl theme. The colors from this photo inspired my owl treat bag. My room mom, from work, made my kindergarten class and I some adorable Halloween treat bags. She told me she found the idea on Pinterest. I am hooked! Below is my Holiday owl treat bag, based upon her Halloween bags.


I used a mini lunch bag as the base of my owl's body. First I folded the top and cut a triangle out. I used my scallop and circle punches to make the eyes. I cut out some green and red dp and used my scallop border punch to make the ruffles. I used Papertrey's sentiment from the Holiday Tree set. I free hand cut the feet and beak. Easy peasy, lemony squeezy! Here's a close up:



Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Hugs!
