Owl Treat Box

I'm back with another cut file...I'm on a roll at present with MTC :) I had another learning curve to make this...I had worked out how to do a basic trace (like the coffee cup in my previous post) but I hadn't done a trace that required being broken into parts for paper piecing. was the day! I should be doing hundreds of other things, like yucky housework, but, oh well, this was way more fun...I think!!!  Tore my hair out a few times while working out the tracing and I could probably have hand cut 10 of these in the time it took to mess with the cut file lol  But, in the end, I'm really, really happy with this little lady...she's very cute...and I LOVE cute owls :)

I found the template for this while surfing Pinterest. (BAD place that Pinterest, it's such a time-waster lol) I'm usually pretty good at noting where things come from when I want to use them but for some reason I can't find the origin of this....I get so mad at myself when I do that!!!  If anyone recognises this, please point me in the right direction so I can give credit to whoever made the original template.

Here's the side view:

This was so quick and easy to make, cutting it with Maxxie (my KNK Maxx). Everything is SU except the googly eyes and ribbon. The base is Crumb Cake, all the DP is from Everyday Enchantment and the white eye panel is Whisper White. All the edges have been inked before assembling. This size uses most of an A4 sheet of CS. I'm going to try scaling it down and see if it still works...the opening isn't very wide once assembled, so it may not be practical to make it smaller.

Thanks for looking.........have a wonderful day :)
