Amazing paper owl in 13 steps

Total Time: 25 minutes

  1. Prepare a sheet of paper
    Drawn Outline

    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.

  2. Use scissors
    Cut out Blank

    Cut the craft with scissors along the contour.

  3. Make an owl body

    You should get the same owl as in the photo.

  4. Make the cuts
    Cutting Stripes in the Owl's Belly

    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.

  5. Straighten the workpiece again
    Incisions in the Owl's Belly

    You should have an owl with slits on its belly.

  6. Prepare colored strips
    Multicolored Stripes

    Cut them out on the long side of the sheet about 1.5 cm wide. You need to make 4 strips of different colors.

  7. Weave a strip

    Push the first light green strip through the slits on the owl’s belly.

  8. Do this with another strip
    Two Stripes in the Body of Anowl

    Use the second purple stripe. Push it through the slits to get the weave.

  9. Finish the weave
    Weaving on the Body of an Owl

    Add the remaining strips in the same way. Make sure that the strips create a weave on the slits.

  10. Trim the ends
    Neatly Trimmed Strips

    Trim the edges of the strips on both sides at an angle to make owl wings.

  11. Use a marker
    Eyes on an Owl

    Draw large eyes on white paper, cut them out and glue them on.

  12. 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.

  13. Create tassels on the ears
    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.
