It’s a Cinch – A Wise Old Bookish Owl

There’s nothing like the joy of reading a great book.

Except maybe making something fabulous from a not so great book.

I love all things Halloween – have you seen my Halloween house tour?

Pop Up Book Page Owl Silhouette - easy way to make your own!

How To:

* Trace owl silhouette onto a book page (pack of owls from the dollar store – or print your own pattern)
* Draw eyes with black marker
* Cut out the owl (I used a tiny cuticle scissor) – do not cut along the bottom of the feet
* Bend owl up – secure with a piece of tape to make it stand upright

  1. I love the look of things made from books–but I can almost never bring myself to cut into them. I’ve bought some beautiful old books with the intention of doing something crafty, but I can never do it. I’m thinking the “not so great book” part is key to this project. 🙂

  2. That is so cute!!! I can imagine this for so many different things.. like Halloween, Easter, Christmas, just about anything! So fun! You could do them all in the same book and then just turn to the right one for the holiday 🙂

  3. Super cool! My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
