Mila had an other birthday party to go to and I totally forgot, we did not have a birthday present yet. Don't worry....Mila already had some ideas, a bag with a present in it...hmmmm...let me think...we came up with the idea that owls would be a good theme to go with. I googled owl (and also searched on flickr) and saw so many great owls and owl related products, even a great blog only about owls called 'My Owl Barn', they have lots of lovely freebies to download if you are an owl lover like me!!! Inspired by all we came up with this owl drawing and Mila helped me to choose the right colours and told me that we had to make a little mouse for the owl to eat :-(
For the present inside the bag I found a great pattern from Becky's etsy shop to make your own owl and printed out the instructions( translated it in dutch) and collected the matreial needed for the project, and made a little kit. To wrap the whole packages I used a simple brown bag and to finish it off I printed an owl print I found on the web.
If you like you can print the owl template and use it to make your own owl bag, I think it will also be good to make into a softie or reduce the size andit will make a lovely christmas ornamant.
