Paper Owl Letter Carrier
Paper (both patterened and colored)
2 in Scalloped paper punch (optional)
If you're going to making this project with younger kids I recommend cutting and gathering all the parts ahead of time. That means cutting out circles (I used a salad plate as a guide), triangle felt beaks, and feathers. For the feathers I used a 2 in. scalloped paper punch on a variety of patterned scrap paper.
Step 1: Cut your paper into circles. If you'd like you could use paper plates and paint them for an extra bit of fun.
Step 2: Fold two sides of your paper circle down and then fold over the two closer corners you've created. Um, I'm sorry, that doesn't make sense, but if you look at the pictures you'll see what I mean.
Step 3: Glue your felt triangle down so that it peeks out from your fold, and then glue the fold down.
Step 4: Add your eye tufts, googly eyes, feathers, and clothspin claws.
