My Craft Spot Guest Designer ~ Valentine Owl Belly Box

Hi there!  My name is Kristin from Paper Creations by Kristin and I am SO excited and honored to be a guest designer today for My Craft Spot!  Thank you so much, what a wonderful opportunity.  Kimberly has beautiful items in her shop and I am in love with her clear stamps sets~AND I have an awesome surprise for you! Yay!

I am excited to show you what I made now~



For today's project, I used the fabulous stamp set called Cute Critters. What a great set full of mixed sentiments that go so well with everything! 


I stamped this cute sentiment on some card stock and cut out a banner shape. I inked the edges a bit, I think it looks cute and helps it stand out a bit more. 



I added it to the front of an Owl Box I made from My Scrap Chick.  The box comes with the owl holding a graduation scroll, but I changed it out to hold a simple heart.  I added a few little bows to her ears and added a foam heart sticker to the middle of each bow.  This is a great gift box for Valentine's Day ~ just add some yummy goodies inside.


Now for some fun, exciting news!  I get to give away a stamp set of YOUR choice from My Craft Spot!!  To win, all you need to do is leave a comment on THIS blog post and let me know which stamp set from My Craft Spot is your favorite.  I will do a drawing and pick a winner in the next few days!  Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. So adorable!! What a fun little gift, this is perfect for V-day and you said the cut file came with a grad scroll?? I might have to grab that, my daughter is graduating this year!
    I actually like the Cute Critters stamp set, there are SO many stamps, cut files, etc that these would go perfect with.

  21. I think I love ALL of the stamps at My Craft Spot, but my favorite right now would have to be the New Arrival set because I have a lot of baby cards to make. Your little box is just darling, and you are so creative. I've never tried working with SVG cutting files, but they sure are cute! I don't know if I could do it, but I should try - I need to learn new things. Thanks for the inspiration.
