To make this you will need
- a clean brown paper bag, brown construction paper, or brown card stock
- yellow and orange scraps of card stock or construction paper.
- black Sharpie marker
An 8×11″ piece of paper was used to make this owl. Fold the paper into a square bringing one edge against the other so the edges are even forming a triangle as shown in this diagram below.
Cut away the extra paper that isn’t part of the triangle.
Open the triangle and fold a smaller triangle to make a nose as shown in the diagram below. Cut away the top portion of the wing sections as shown.
Using a BLACK marker, draw the pupils of the eyes, and makes lines on the wings and tail feathers as shown.
Cut a small triangle from ORANGE or YELLOW paper and glue it to the front of the triangle that makes up the nose.
