Owl Gift Box

And yet another criss cross box for a present.

I've done a few of these now but I enjoy making them and think they make a really nice, useful present.

They are designed for 6 cards but I've snuck 8 in to this one!

The box is decorated with paper from a Papermania pack.

The cards then use some of this paper and matching card and a rather large array of Stampin' Up punches - including Owl Builder, Bird Builder, Photo Corners, Modern Label, Decorative Label, 1.75" circle & Word Window! 

I couldn't find my SU scallop punch when I wanted it (unearthed it now!) so had to use a woodware one.

At least I am getting my money out of the punches which I do use a lot.

I've added little peel off greetings on 6 of the cards, leaving 2 blank and finished off some with some matching card candi.


  1. I do so love that owl punch - a bit fiddly to do but well worth it I'd say. What a great gift and of course can come in many colours by using up our stash!!

  2. Gorgeous gift Jill. Love that cross-eyed owl!!!

  4. very cute - I havent seen these punches before, but how do you manage the time to make such lovely gifts! I have just got my large quilling picture back and I am not giving it away to anyone after it took so long to make!!
