Whoo's ready for a party?!?

We recently celebrated my daughter's first birthday, and the theme of her celebration was 'owls'. I had a 'hoot' putting it all together (sorry...couldn't resist)! Here are a few highlights:

practice cake, complete with an improvised carrot nose!
final cake
getting some mommy help...she was being too neat!!
awesome photo shoot with Brooke

It wouldn't have been a party without some crafting, though, right?? Here's the lesson for tonight: owl party favors!!!
These treat bags are super easy and fun to make! Be sure to customize the snacks to match your colors.

The base of this topper is a top note from Stampin' Up! folded in half. The base of the eye is the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch, and the white circle is the 1 1/4" circle punch. The pupil was a 1/2" circle cut on the Cricut.
The toughest part (and I use that term extremely loosely!!) was the nose. I had to play around with this a bit to get it how I liked it, but I ended up using the same 1 3/4" scallop circle punch and cutting it down to 3 scallops:

(sorry, had to pull a glued one apart for this picture! at least the elmer's held well!!)
Fold the two outer scallops in to the center, using a liquid adhesive (I went for good, old fashioned Elmer's) to glue the two sides together. Clip together using mini library clips or any other strong clip and allow to dry overnight. 

Fill your treat bags with goodies and staple the baggies closed. Throw a few Glue Dots in between the bag and the front and back of the owl and press shut.

Cute, huh??
