{Kids Craft} Paper Owls with Bowdabra Bows

Owls are so much fun to make and can be used for a variety of occasions or just for fun.  Use these owls for platesetters, room decor, or for pretend play.

There are a large number of owl patterns available for free with a quick google search.  I used a sewing pattern and just cut it out onto paper. I finished the owls with a quick paper stand.

Here is the link for the pattern: http://petitelefant.com/diy-owl-bean-bag/
