Learn How to Make Owl Valentine Card
Trace and Cut Out Patterns
Trace all the patterns from coloured craft papers except for the eyes. Cut out the big and small circles (for the eyes) from white paper and cut out the medium circle from black craft paper. Use different coloured craft papers for the owl base and the wings.
Assemble and Craft the Eyes
Glue the small circle cut out of the eyes on a side of the black circle cutout. Now glue the black circle on the big white circle cutout. Similarly, prepare the other eye of the paper owl.
Make the Card
Take the rectangle paper cutout and fold it into half lengthwise. This will be the card held by the paper owl. Attach the small heart cutout on the front side of the mini card.
How to Attach the Wings?
We won’t be attaching the wings entirely on the owl base. Just apply a drop of glue on the inner curved points on both sides of the owl base.
Attaching the Wings
Now carefully place the wings on both sides of the owl base, making sure to align the wings with the base on both sides.
Attaching the Eyes
Use craft glue to attach the eyes on the head part (top side) of the owl base.
Attaching the Blushes and Beak
Now, attach the blush cutouts on both cheeks and the beak right below and in the middle of the eyes.
Owl DIY owl valentine card is almost complete! I’v cut out the small wing patterns from glitter craft papers to add a pretty texture to the owl craft, but you can use a different coloured craft paper than the big wings. Now, simply slide the mini card between under the wings of the paper owl. Oh, and don’t forget to write down a note for your valentine on the card!
