Owl Post-it pads

I have been assembling these adorable owls.  It is a simple process to glue the pieces together.  Then it is glued to a cover.  I glue the post-it pad onto the back part of the cover.  Use a crop-a-dile to punch a hole. Then add a binder ring and some ribbon. Voila, this adorable project is all ready!

If you want to make these sweet owls you can get a Stampin' Up! owl builder punch from me.
