I have really come to embrace my role as an aunt. Being an aunt is not a consolation prize for me, it's not second best. It is the best! I get to be there for my nieces and nephews in a different way than their parents can. It's a real privilege. So all that to say I decided to make owl favors with candy in them for the kids.
I found the idea on my friend Mel's blog called Needle and Nest Design. Check out the tutorial here.
I got craft paper from the post office to use for the owls.
I sewed up the edges of the owls which worked great.
Then I painted the owl with some white paint and then illustrated the owl with a sharpie.
Here is my friend Lisa and I making the owl's. It was a blast.
William was at my house tonight which was awesome!
I just love my nieces and nephews. I can't wait to see them on Saturday!
