Choose co-ordinating lightweight paper for owl inner layer.  Glue cardstock owls over the l.w. paper so that paper print shows on face of owl.

Decorate your owls! We used sequins for the eyes and glitter glue for accents.

The girls and I have been making these all weekend long….my oldest, age 6,  decided that she’d like to use them as her Valentine’s for school this year and that we should make enough to mail a few out as well.  Maybe next year she’ll be in the phase where handmade stuff isn’t cool….this year, we’re making them. 

These little owls are quick and simple to make and very easy to personalize.  And, they use up small scraps of paper….that’s super-great, in my book.
