{Owl} House is a very very very fine house...

Hooty hoooot! I'm back with our friend MISS owl. (Remember this card HERE)? Today she's spending a little time at home in her sweet owl house. A fine one indeed! OK, so you got me, it's not a house really but it is something fabulous....it's a new template from Kelleigh Ratzlaff!



This template, called the Top Heavy Box, along with two other templates will be released August 1st at the Digichick Boutique as Kelleigh's August Grab bag! Don't miss her bag along with the other amazing digichick designer bags. Trust me, it's the most cost effective "designer bag" you'll ever purchase ;) LOL!

Meanwhile, back at the owl house....here is a side shot of the box so you can see how the roof extends the design of the box.


Eek! My print lines are showing! I KNOW! I am breaking my own template printing rules ;) (Boy am I easily distracted tonight as I type this or what? And it's not even late) OK, seriously now.... Normally the front tab of the box top would tuck all the way down into the box OR be used as a decorative front tab with a velcro, magnet or the like to snap the box shut. Instead, I folded the bottom half of the front tab back up to provide a lip for the roof to adhere to. I left the part of the roof that has the punched lattice edge UN-glued from the lip of the box tab so it would allow the box top edge to wedge up into and behind the lattice. This makes your little box secure. The box is tall enough to stash a gift card (wouldn't a home improvement store gc for a new home owner be fun?) or you can fill it with other goodies.

Here's a parting shot from Miss Owl perched on her *giggle* real branch. Oh! And what stylish owl DOESN'T have a lace crochet door mat outside her front door? *giggle giggle* . (Obviously I had WAY too much fun with this project!)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I so appreciate your visits. Have a hoot of a day friends!

Good grief you rock my world! Between the boring job, the intense evenings with my new 7 mo. old, & my hubby out of a job...your blog makes my day! I haven't touched my scrap stuff since Oct 08, so I am currently living vicariously through you. Keep the "Dana drugs" coming!!
