My project is an Owl Boo Banner!
Owls seem to be the craze this Halloween/Fall and my family room is decorated to the "whooot" with them. So making the owl banner to hang over my mantle seemed the perfect thing to create for this Blog Hop. The owl and lettering can be found in the Cricut Artiste book on pages 76 and 77. The actual banner flags can be found in the Art Philosophy Book on page 39. The owls are cut out of felt! I used brown and orange stiff felt from the local fabric store. I love using my Cricut to cut felt (see my tutorial how to do this effortlessly). The paper is from the new CTMH Moonlight paper pack. I also used smokey plum, gold rush, pear, topiary, and creme brûlée card stock. I used CTMH's amazing burlap for the bows embellished with CTMH green buttons. To hang the banner, I used multiple strands of hemp tied together. To finish it off, I liquid glassed googly eyes to all the owl eyes on the Beautiful Moonlight B&T paper.
