owl valentines....!

...the last set of valentines this year....i seriously have to remember that if i have an idea for one....then i have to do something for all 3 kids!....we have a soft spot around here for owls.....and owls are so in now.....seriously owl themed birthday parties, baby showers, weddings, team building events....ok maybe i haven't seen that last one, but wouldn't be surprised if someone did use owls for that.....

.....anyway.....they are made from this stuff.....

...the body is heart shaped peppermint patties (they are even pink cute!)....eyes are valentine's day m&m's (accents drawn on with a food writer), wings are cherry and vanilla flavored tootsie rolls decorated with some red royal icing, beak is a heart from the heart sprinkle mix.....everything attached with royal icing.....the tootsie roll was nuked for 5-10 secs until it was soft enough to roll out....then used an icing tip to cut out a circle.....cut that in half to make the wings..... end up with a bunch of these little guys.....!

.....the rest of the valentine is cardstock and some oil pastels.....and a quick google search for some cute owl-ish sayings.....

....and all wrapped up to give out monday.....between, the lego dudes, the thomas trains, and these......i'm all valentine'd out now.....i hope the kids are ok with store bought next year....!

...and really now happy valentines day!!!

ps what does an educated owl say.....whom...!
