Owl Charm

Happy Monday everyone. I love to sew and have a rotary cutter that has an Owl pattern on it. One day I had a bright idea to make a charm for my rotary cutter. I do have ideas once in a while (hee, hee).
Here is a closer look so you can see the owls on the cutter.
Close up of the front.

And a close up of the back.

I used the Create a Critter cartridge and cut out the front and back in a coordinating color. Tried to get a color that would look good with the rotary cutter. I cut out the other layers as well. There is a solid black center and I cut out 6 of these. I glued all 6 of these black layers together, then the other layers were added. Oh don't forget to use a hole punch and punch out the key ring hole as you go. After all was put together I used Mod Podge and a small flat paint brush and applied 3 coats. Let the coats dry in between and don't forget to paint it along the edges. This really makes a nice seal over the paper.

I have made these before and given them as a gift with the key chain. They really are quick and easy to make. You may want to give it a go and see what other little critters you can use.

God Bless,
