I love the mummyowl

Hello and thank you for stopping by. Halloween is getting nearer and I want to show you today another Halloween character I made with the StampinUP Owl-punch .
Meet the Mummyowl.

This one is one of my favorites as he was a little challenge for me. I didn´t wanted to make the gaze out of paper, but real material. So I took some white fabric I had left over and teared them with my hands in stripes. Then I punched out a white owl body and a pair of black and white eyes. I adhered the eyes and then turned the owlbody to put some sticky-tape on it. then I tool one of the fabricstripes and started to put it arround the owl-body. I cut off the ends after adhere it to the sticky tape and made another round arround the Owlbody, but overlaped the first strip a bit with the next one.I made this step a few times until I came to the eyes-section where I tried to hide the eyes only a little under the fabric so that they would still show though. I ripped a thinner piece of fabric for the top of the mummyowl and turned it arround the ears of the owl and over the eyes. Isn´t he cute :)
Here are two cards I made with him.
Tell me what you think about them :)
I hope everyone is having a great week.
