Owl Tutorial

I've been making these owls for a long time now and have finally got around to making a little tutorial for them (one down and about a million more to go!)....
This is what the finished owl on a card looks like.....
I used the wonderful papers from Do Crafts, Portabello Road........
So here is how you put him together,
 You can use circle dies or punches. You will also need a flower punch and a little triangle (I just cut this freehand). 
So, 2 large circles (1 for the body and 1 for the wings), 2 medium circles, 2 small circles, 2 medium flowers and 1 triangle.
 Use the die or punch to cut a semi circle out of one of the large circles.
 Cut out 2 semi circles from the other large circle. These will be the wings.
 Glue into position on the body.
 Add the eyes.
 Add the centers to the eyes. (I cut out a little wedge from each of the eye centers).
 Now you add his little beak.
Glue on his feet (I leave the flowers whole so that there is something to glue onto the back).

I love owls, so I love to make them all different sizes. They are perfect for adding to all of your papercrafting projects.
You can even make them out of felt or funky foam!
If you make any of them, please let me know so that I can pop over to your blog and have a look.
Happy craftin'
