Whether you use one Cricut®-cut piece or several, you can create cute party favors and decorations using your Close To My Heart/Cricut Artiste cartridge. Combine your Cricut® pieces with unique stamping techniques and you have projects that will knock your guests’ socks off! Want some recipes and tips for how to make this adorable artwork? Below are instructions for creating the darling owl from the “Clearly the Best: How to Kiss—With Stamps” episode. Combine the Cricut®-cut pieces for this project with the  technique taught in the video, and you have a stellar 3-D item!

Art Tip! This project uses many Cricut® shapes and all the pieces coordinate so nicely for an adorable finished product. Use the Artiste assembly booklet to put the bag together and then add the embellishments. The feathers are created with punched circles that are stamped using the kissing technique; however, if you don’t have the circle punch, you can easily make these using the Cricut as well. The eyes were created using Shimmer designer brads, but you can use any large brad or button to create the same look. Finish with the “owl miss you sentiment” for a special touch.
