Hello there! This is the Hostess gift I made this month using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die. I used Crumb Cake Cardstock for the box and used the Sweet Stack stamp set in Crumb Cake ink for the texture on his face. I used the edge of the die to trace his mouth using a Black Project Life Journaling Pen. I used the Tree Punch for his nose in Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and gave him some Pumpkin cheeks as well using a Sponge Dauber. I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in Crushed Curry Cardstock for his eyes and added Neutral Buttons to the centers adorned with Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

I made a hat for him using Early Espresso Cardstock and the Circles Framelits. I crumpled it up to give it some texture and added pieces of Burlap Ribbon underneath with Tear & Tape. I cut a strip of So Saffron Cardstock with Fringe Scissors and added those as well. I used the set A Little Something for the tag in Crushed Curry Cardstock and attached it to an Early Espresso scallop circle. I attached it to the hat using Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

Finally, I added his little crow friend made with the Bird Builder Punch in Basic Black Cardstock. I punched a couple of the leaves in Crushed Curry and added them for his beak. I finished him off with a Cherry Cobbler heart made with the Owl Builder Punch. He was such a fun little guy to make and I hope my Hostess loves him as much as I do:) I've been in Halloween mode, so make sure to come back tomorrow for another fun idea. Thanks so much for stopping by:)
