Stampin' Up! Club Swaps - Owl Boxes

Hey Everyone! So Amber, Marci and I go to club once a month at my Stampin' Up! Upline's house. Cindy has a great blog. Check it out if you get a chance. A few months back Cindy started a swap with her club members. As you all know, I love to make mini cards. When Cindy sent out the first email to give the details, she specifically said to make FULL SIZE cards. He he he! So I did, just like a good girl. But this time around, I decided to not make a card at all! I got a petal box die last month, so I decided to make boxes for everyone.

Here they are:

Counter curtosy of Amber Lafata! :)

Owl For You Petal Box:
Cardstock - Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye
Stamps - Stampin' Up!
Ink - Old Olive, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up!
Punches - Owl and Itty Bitty flower Stampin' Up!
Die - Petal Box Sizzix for Stampin' Up!
Liquid Glitter - Martha Stewart
Baker's Twine - My Stash
Jelly Beans - Life Saver and Starburst :)

These are so simple to make. You cut out 2 petals. Then you glue the flaps on each side to just inside each piece. I glued the flaps down on top, but you don't have to. You can leave them loose or fold them on top. I planned on having them open though to have the candy sticking out of the top. Otherwise I would have closed them. And because I was being cheap and didn't want to buy Sticky Strip to hold it all together, I used my glue gun. It wasn't perfect. But they held together just fine.

Two non-crafting items to mention:

The first thing, has anyone read Water for Elephants? I just started it today finally. And I am really loving it so far. I am hoping the movie will be good! The movie coming out is the reason why I finally decided to read it, although I have been wanting to read it for quite a while. I admit, I am worried Robert Pattinson won't be a strong enough actor to play the part. Hopefully, I am wrong though! We shall see.

And the second thing is, I am watching Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert The O2 tonight. It's been forever since I have seen the movie and listened to the music. I forget how good it is. So many good songs and characters! Wow, it's such an amazing experience. Even on the small screen and just the music. It's on PBS, so if you get a chance, watch it!! So so so good!
