Supplies Needed to Make an Owl Craft Card

Different colored cardstock – we used blue, green and yellow in two different shades of color. And you’ll also need white and orange for the beak and eyes.

Black Marker

Glue – Regular glue or a glue stick. However, since this is all paper – I like to use a glue stick for this project since it’s less messy.

Steps to Make An Owl Craft Card

1. First, print out the owl template (you can get the details to download at the bottom of the post).

Cut out the template elements. Then trace around your template elements for each color.


2. For the owl body, fold over a piece of the darker colored paper first. Trace the owl body template so that the straight part of the template is along the folded part of the colored paper.
