Very Owl-ie!

My mama and I made these owl-ie clip bookmarks with her two-step Owl Punch and some jumbo colored paper clips we bought at Target. These are presents for some special people. The first two sets are for my new first grade teachers! I can't wait for school to start! :-)

And these are for a friend who is coming over for a playdate...she loves pink!

I can't wait to give these presents to my teachers and friends. Thanks for stopping by my blog...and please leave a comment!! :-)

Oh my goodness, these little Owl-ey's are adorable, I love'em! They look so cute sitting on top of the paperclips with their big googly eyes and their colorful outfits AND the little itty-bitty hearts on some. I know your teachers are going to love them too. Great idea stamping another animal on the top note tag too, I think I'll do that next time I make these tags, thanks for the idea!

These are so beautiful Arden...what a good job you have done. I am a teacher too and I know that I would love a special gift like this.
Good idea too, I will have to make them with my class.
Thank you for sharing,

Your owl clips are adorable, Arden! What a great idea for your new teachers, I'm sure they will love them. I especially love the way you packaged them so professionally. I'm sure you had lots of fun making these with your mom!

Pink owl-ies are very rare and special so your friend is going to be so happy that you gave her some!

And teachers have so many books that those
owl-ies you gave them are going to be very busy marking pages!

You did a great job Arden!~

I do know that your new teachers are going to love these! They'll find them very useful, too! I know because I'm a teacher and I would love to receive these charming bookmarks from one of my students! I hope you have a wonderful first day of school!
