How to make an Easy Paper Owl Bookmark

I love everything about owls, their intelligence, the way they hunt at night and sleep during the day. Even the annoying sound of them hooting that wakes you up at five in the morning! That’s why today I am going to show you how to make an easy paper owl bookmark. This can be used when reading your favourite stories or to give as a gift to a friend or family member.

Easy Paper Owl Bookmark Tutorial:

What you will need:

  1. One square paper of any colour
  2. White, black and any other coloured paper for the eyes and wings
  3. Orange paper for the beak
  4. Glue
  5. scissors
  6. Pencil or pen for details

1. Firstly halve the square piece of paper to make a triangle:

5. Finally, ask an adult to cut out some circles for the eyes and glue them on. Next cut out the beak and some wings for the owl. Then with a pen or pencil add some details of the owl’s feathers and any other final details you want. Now your paper owl bookmark is complete and ready for use!

    This is such a cute project to mark pages in a book. My son has been obsessed with pick marks ever since my husband told him that he can use them to mark where he is up to in a book if he has to go potty…
