Last week we hosted a Valentine's card making party at Chronicle Books' shop on Union Street in San Francisco, featuring a valentine's version of the Owl-y Friend card by Petra Boase, from our book Handmade Hellos.
We had a great turnout - so much fun!
By the end of the night, we had a crazy number of variations on the owl, and lots of happy crafters!
The owls (and some non-owls) were as varied as their makers...
We dubbed this one the "red hot" owl - love the color combo!
And what about these "disco wings"!?
Glitter was one of the more popular supplies...a comedian once called glitter the STD of crafting, and our party proved that out...my the end, it had spread everywhere! Hilarious!
Or how about this hilarious birthday card? The little alien is made from a patterned paper by EIEIO.
Owl with wings and eyes akimbo... Thanks to everyone who attended, and a special shout-out to Christina Loff for organizing. Happy Valentine's Day!!
