Owl container

My nephew had a birthday last month and his momma loves owls, so when I found this owl made out of an oatmeal conatiner, I figured that was an awesome way to wrap the present.  Everything I gave as a present fit in there perfectly!

My oatmeal container was a lot bigger than the small one used in the tutorial, so I had to adjust the measurements for my container...easy to do if you just measure and mark on the container where you want the sections to go.

My only trouble was keeping the paper glued to the container at the top when I folded it down to make the top of the head...I just had to add tape along to top edges to keep it attached.

The yellow part of the eyes I made from yellow satin that I cut in circles and seared with a lighter - carefully- to make it curl up.
