Intro: Paper Owl Box

This project originally appeared on my website, www.robives.com

The shape of the Owl Box is inspired by a papertoy batman I came across whilst exploring the many and varied pages of Pinterest. I'm afraid I can't find it again so I'm afraid I can't give credit where it is due.

That said, lets get on and make this simple but delightfully cute owl!

Start by downloading the owlbox.pdf file ready to print out.

Step 1:

I started out by printing out the Owl onto a sheet of thin card (230micron/ 67lb) then printing a page from the Polka-dot Pattern downloaded from my website for free on the reverse. The polka-dots gives the inside of the box a nice finished feel. I then set the paper aside to let the ink dry completely before following these few steps to construct the owl box.

Step 2:

Score along all the dotted and dashed lines then carefully cut out the parts.

Pre-crease all the dotted and dashed lines. Note that the dashed lines are hill folds and the dotted lines are valley folds.

Step 3:

Fold up and glue the open topped box base.

Step 4:

Glue the two feet to the base.

Step 5:

Glue the two feet to the base.

Step 6:

Fold round and glue together the head part into a square paper tube.

Fold in the top front and back to make the two "ears"

Step 7:

And that's it! The head acts as a box top. Fill your owl with candy and give it to a friend.

Step 8:

Tu-whit Tu-whoo!
