Hoot! Hoot!

Hello everybody!!!
I was doing my usual Sunday morning browsing in blogland and I came across the
 Saturday Step X Step at Frilly and Funky. Rebecca was showing how to make a Bendi Card. Apparently Bendi cards have been around a long time, but they are new to me! It looked very interesting!  Well...then I started looking around at what's new at the Silhouette Online store. And lo and behold...there was a Bendi Card!!! And then my little creative brain got an idea! 
Owls!! Birthday!! Why this? I do not know!!!

But this is what I made:

Is this not a hoot???

Here is how it opens up..

Ta Da!!!!

You see...there are these little tabs and slots on the panels that make them bow out and give a 3-D effect!

It wasn't very hard to make, just a little labor intensive.
But so much fun!!!
I am gonna definitely try it again!!

Thanks for stopping by!
