That's a lot of work for something that will get tossed eventually.

But cute.

Dear Anonymous,

EVENTUALLY everything will get tossed but in the mean time we can spend out time making something with our hands that will make people smile! Cause seriously, who wouldn't want a cute little owl with M&M's in it?! :)

Wow Anonymous - I still haven't tossed my SWEET little owl. I guess it just depends on how much you appreciate things that people took their time to do for you huh?
Thanks for the Owl Dawn!

These are so adorable! I was looking for party favors on the internet and found these. I would like to use this idea for my party favors, but I don’t have the tools that you listed in the blog. I own a Cricut Expression. The measurement of the different shape would be very helpful. Such as the top note, open oval that is on the bag and the size of the scallop circle. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
