Hey guys! Here is my Pinspiration for this blog post on making scrapbook owls.
I cannot find the original link to where the pin came from. When I repinned it into my Classroom Board, the link just goes to a blank website. Either way, it inspired me to do my first summer craft project! So, I’ve recreated the pin to match my classroom’s owl theme.
Materials Needed for Making Scrapbook Owls
Owl body template
Scrapbook paper (affiliate Amazon link)
Owl eye template
Owl beak template
Mod Podge (affiliate Amazon link)
Laminator (affiliate Amazon link)
So, I gathered a huge pile of things on my living room floor and got to work last night! I made a little assembly line. First, I traced the owl template on the cardstock.
Then, I cut out the eyes and beak from a printed out Word document.
I used a tiny bit of ModPodge to attach the eyes and beak to the owls’ bodies.
TEACHER’S. WORST. NIGHTMARE. My poor blue scrapbook paper owls got wrapped up in my laminator and never came back out…
BUT!! I got to buy a new and improved laminator!! I’m keeping my Walmart receipt (just in case). Knock on wood!!
Making Scrapbook Owls – The Results
Here is a look at the finished product. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with them yet, but I’m pretty sure I want to display students’ work with them. So, I am thinking of a clothespin that can simply hold their paper up on the wall!
They ended up great, and I can’t wait to decorate my door with these cute little owls. I can’t get into school until mid-July (wet wax), so I’ll have to suffer until then.
