OMG! Owl Punch!

One of the first things I *had* to have from the new 2010-11 Idea Book & Catalogue was the Two Step Owl Punch (page 146). The punch itself doesn't look like much, but once you do a bit of creative punching and gluing, you get this little guy - how adorable is this?

He's only little, too - a hair under 3.5cm from the top of his head to his butt (not counting ears or feet).

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the owl contains a few new colours - his body is made using the new Early Espresso core colour, a dark, dark brown; the heart is in the new In Color Poppy Parade - a clear bright red, almost a vermillion; and the eyes are another In Color, Peach Parfait, which is kind of like a lighter version of Pumpkin Pie.

And here's a variation, which isn't an original idea at all - but it's so darned cute and easy I had to make one. The beak is made from the heart included in the punch, with the eyes glued over the top. This one has a bit of an odd look - those little black pupils are super small and kind of tricky to glue on!
