Inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest from a cute little shop on Etsy (alohababies). I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to create these cute little owl candy toppers. They are so easy to make and a great way to share some love!
Supplies Needed to make six: (you can use any color scheme to fit your party)
1 sheet of black CTMH card stock
1 sheet of smokey plum CTMH card stock
1 sheet of buttercup CTMH card stock
1 sheet of autumn terra-cotta cardstock
White chalk marker
3 bags of colorful M & Ms to match (I used green, orange, purple). I purchased these from Party City, they sell them in individual colors. You can also order online from M & M store.
Cellophane bags (I like the rounded ones it makes the body more full and owl like, but any kind will work)
|Rounded cellophane bags can be found|
at Michaels or AC Moore.
I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge and Cricut Craft Room from CTMH to make this process quick and easy. For instructions on how to use the CCR file, click here!
The black portion is cut from AP Cartridge <rectangle8> and <oval3> (I can email file by request)
I used CCR to overlay the oval on the rectangle shape in the center of the rectangle to create the opening for the bag and curve for the owl head.
The size of the rectangle is about 5 1/2 X 3 1/2 and oval is about an inch wide and stretched to just about enough of the rectangle to allow the ear to fold and still be attached.
The green circles are cut at 1 1/4 inch
The yellow and purple circles are cut at 1 inch (purple are cut in half)
The black circles are cut at 3/4 inch, make a little mark with chalk marker to give it that extra touch
The orange triangle is cut from a one inch strip and then just cut at an angle to cut the triangles
Once I it cut out, I folded the rectangle in half, leaving the oval shape out
I used CTMH bonding glue to adhere all the parts on the head
I filled the bags with candy of choice/color in cellophane of choice, seal the bag with a twisty
Adhere the sides of the owl head closed
