Hello everyone! It’s Anna here.

Autumn is coming and lately there seems to be a lot of fox images out there in the craft world, not to mention the still popular owl. This week I used fox and owl to create a few quick and easy "Back to School" projects using a Sizzix die set!

 Pillow Boxes with Owl & Fox Sizzix Die set

I decided to make two cute boxes for my nieces. They love the owls and foxes!!!

These projects would also make wonderful gifts for any kids you know and really cute gift bags for a birthday party.

The set Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6PK - Box Owl & Fox is a new style of pillow box with everything you need to create the cute fox and owl and is pictured below:

How build a box:

Die-cut the Fox or Owl pieces from desired material.

Create the Box by adhering the two pieces together. Fold all crease lines.

Adhere the remaining long tab to the opposing edge to form the body of the box. Fold in the short rectangular bottom flaps. Fold the remaining flaps down and hook then together by sliding the pointed tips underneath each other.

Embellish the fox or owl using the pieces of face, eyes... Also if you want add stamps, twine ect. You can draw some details with a black marker.
