Hoot Hoot!! Notes

Hello everyone. Just another couple of days for CraftyJC's Pick your Giveaway.

Here is something I made with one of the giveaway options – one of my all-time favourites – Mr.Owl.

I covered the chipboard with paper and then Die cut the owl. I always find this is the easiest way to get paper neatly on chipboard or magnet. Then cut all other pieces in different colours and assemble the Owl.

Use scraps to just about cover the smaller pieces rather than use large pieces of those precious papers.

Now, this tip is something you are gonna thank me for :D

The easiest way to hang such things is using these paper clips. I got these for Rs.3.50/- in Landmark.
Just attach the paper clip, thread it with a piece if twine or ribbon – Voila!! You have a frame to hang.
You can easily hang the loop of the paper clip itself onto a nail on the wall

I took of the backing of a post-it notes stack and attached it to Mr. Owl and clipped the pen on.
You may add a piece double sided tape to the last paper for a firmer grip.

You can hang this from your fan speed regulator knob like I’ve done in our house or the Fridge’s handle. Or even slap on a piece of magnet and stick it to your fridge.

And you have an easy and colourful way to write down those to-buy list in the Kitchen

What went in:

  • 657694 – Owl from Sizzix
