How to Make the Owl Valentine Paper Craft
Print the owl template and cut out the pieces to use as tracing patterns.
Use white construction paper for the front part, pink for the blush, orange for the feet, white for the eyes, red for the heart, and two different shades of brown for the body base and the wings. Trace and cut out the pieces.
Use a Sharpie marker to fill in the black area of each eye.
Attach the front part on the front of the body base.
Attach the two feet cutouts on the bottom side of the body base pattern, keeping the feet facing outwards. Attach the eyes near the top side of the front part. Attach the blush cutouts on both cheeks, below the eyes.
Attach the beak cutout between the eyes.
Take one wing cutout and apply glue along its outer side; align the glued edge with the body base outline. (The wing should be attached to the body base along the side only; the rest of it should be free from glue.)
Attach the second wing the same way as the first.
Trace and cut out a heart-shaped piece from red construction paper. Attach the heart cutout under the wings of the owl.
Use a Sharpie marker to outline the eyes and add eyelashes as pictured below.
