Amazing paper owl in 13 steps
Total Time: 25 minutes
Prepare a sheet of paper
Make an orange base for your owl. The size of the craft can be different. In our example, we use half of an A4 sheet. Fold the sheet in half in the longitudinal direction. Draw the outline of the half for the future owl.
Cut the craft with scissors along the contour.
Make an owl body
You should get the same owl as in the photo.
Make the cuts
Now fold the owl’s body in half in the other direction. Use scissors to make several parallel incisions at a distance of about 1.5 cm.
Straighten the workpiece again
You should have an owl with slits on its belly.
Prepare colored strips
Cut them out on the long side of the sheet about 1.5 cm wide. You need to make 4 strips of different colors.
Weave a strip
Push the first light green strip through the slits on the owl’s belly.
Do this with another strip
Use the second purple stripe. Push it through the slits to get the weave.
Finish the weave
Add the remaining strips in the same way. Make sure that the strips create a weave on the slits.
Trim the ends
Trim the edges of the strips on both sides at an angle to make owl wings.
Use a marker
Draw large eyes on white paper, cut them out and glue them on.
Make a nose
Take the red paper, fold it in half and cut out a triangle. This blank will be the beak of an owl.
Create tassels on the ears
Create owl ears. Cut a couple of thin strips of orange paper, fold them and glue them. The paper owl is ready.
You can complicate the craft. Cut not 4 strips, but more, then the owl will look even more beautiful.
