A little backwards, I know....

but I thought this Valentine's treat that we made for my son's classmates was worth sharing. I CASE'd the owl from a talented lady (who I cannot remember the name of) over at SCS. The owl is made up of cut paper from punches and Sizzix dies. I used SU! Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and Whisper White CS. The edges of the large scallop circle on the owl were sponged with Real Red Classic ink to add a little depth. I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to draw on eyelashes. The caption I created and stuck on said "Whoooo likes you? I do! Happy Valentine's Day from Zachary." In the cello bag are two heart shaped crayons. My son is obsessed with only using new, well pointed crayons and won't touch the broken ones. (hmmmm....wonder where he gets that from **wink, wink**). Anyway, we collected all the broken pieces and placed multi colors in a Wilton silicone heart mold pan. Baked at 250 until they were melted and swirling on their own. Once they cooled we popped them out and had cool crayons to share. Now maybe he'll use them! His friends were pleased, and I was happy to have come up with something besides candy to give! Hope you enjoy.

What a hoot! I'll have to share this with my niece. She loves owls and she is going to do her daughter's birthday this year with owls.
