Adorable Owl Bag and Goodies Giveaway

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Adorable Owl Bag and Goodies Giveaway

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Adorable Owl Bag and Goodies Giveaway

How cute are these darling little bags with their pretty matching contents. I love to hunt on amazon for cute and fun things to put into my projects and fell on these little pieces when I spotted them.

I knew I wanted to bag them all up together, so each has a set of nail files, a pair of tweezers and a mirror. Too adorable and definitely giftable, so that’s what I’m doing

Both of these are up for grabs, and all you need to do is leave me a comment here, on the YouTube page or my business page and tell me what your favourite animal is. You have until Wednesday 12th October to leave me a comment and I will draw a name at random!

Okay so my cute bags are 3 x 3 x 1″ (7.5 x 7.5 x 2.5cm) when completed so they’re going to hold a few little treats, if not the same as I’ve added.

  2. I love all animals, but at the moment I have a bit of a thing about owls! Karen x

  3. Hi Sam,
    I love owls, very wise birds. In the last week have found you on youtube … wonderful goodies. I have been making quilte a few of your amazing little boxes for my advent and christmas gifts. You are very talented and an amazing teacher, keep up your good work.

  4. I love orcas/killer whales. I think they are beautiful. When I was younger we went to Windsor safari park and the whale was being silly and the trainer said who would like to take him home. My hand shot up “me me” my mum asked me where will we keep it ” in the bath” I was young and had no idea of sizes.

  5. Just a purring cat on my lap.

  6. actually my favorite animal is an owl. I even used to collect them (ornaments of course).

  7. Patricia Schott Koch says:

    Your projects are wonderful!!! I watch daily … even the past projects. My favorite animal is the bat. They are AMAZING, as are your boxes, bags, and cards!

  8. Dawn Appleton says:

    Ace tutorial as always. Hubby has a bit of thing for owls so we have a few dotted about the place but my animal love will always be the elephant x

  9. Definitely a donkey! (Though I adore my dogs!) I hope that the owls on your goodies are not as noisy as the ones out here! Thanks for another fab project.

  10. These are super cute! Might have to try them out myself 🙂 I have a love for all animals (to the point where I actually went to uni to study them!), but my absolute favourites are marine animals. I adore seahorses especially xxx

    How adorable are these! I have always had a special love for penguins, probably because they look so cute, but also because even though those wings can no longer do what they were meant to do, these sweet little creatures have adapted them to fly through the worlds coldest seas!

  40. These bags are so adaptable for any time of year – great projects as always! Wish I could be so inventive…

  41. Hi Sam, great project as always.
    My favourite animals are pandas. I’ve my fingers crossed that our female panda here at the Royal Adelaide Zoo is in the family way after the latest breeding season.

  50. My cat but I do wish she was a bit more cuddly. I have the owl builder and love it so many little critters from one punch.

  51. Sam I love it! The owl punch is still one of my absolute favourites and I love this winter owl. Unfortunately, I ordered 2 times this months – but not together – so no owl hostess gift for me 🙁
