How to Make the Owl Valentine Paper Craft

Step 1

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.

Step 5

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.)
