We want to share this owl tutorial from the workshop we conducted at the Yellowren Arts Festival last August. We were experimenting with the newly released Hyperlapse app and decided to shoot a video.
Little Yellow Owl Tutorial
We displayed a few designs for participants to choose from, however, most people wanted to finish making the paper craft in under 30 minutes. We came up with this simplified owl tutorial design.
Breakdown of the design
Hot Glue Gun
Pair of Tweezers
You can make the corrugated paper rolls by taking a thin strip of Kokoru Ichi and making a paper spiral. Glue the edge using hot glue gun instead of regular glue since you will need something that bonds quickly. Use the tweezers to hold the small pieces of paper so you can put hot glue on it without burning your fingers.
When working with hot glue gun, children should not be allowed to use this tool unsupervised since it is a burn hazard. In our workshop, we had to operate the hot glue gun ourselves and assist the kids with sticking the parts together so we would suggest to do the same if you’re doing this craft with kids.
I hope you enjoy making this owl tutorial or a similar design with these materials. Please share a link in the comments below and we would be glad to feature selected designs.
We were asked to review the Kokoru Corrugated Paper by toprint.com.sg, the local distributor. We were given several packs of Kokoru Ichi, which are long strips of colorful paper, and Kokoru Hachi, which comes in A4 size, to create 3d creations. You can create so many objects by combining the basic shapes.
You can copy the designs from the back of the packet but we decided to make our own garden themed creations just to see if it was really easy to come up with an original design.
The most difficult part is coming up with the design. Once you have a design in mind, you can easily execute it if you built the design using basic shapes. All you need is a pair of scissors, pencil, hole puncher, and hot glue gun to bring your creation to life.
The Flower and The Bee
When doing this project be extra careful of the hot glue gun. We managed to burn ourselves with the melted hot glue a few times because we got a bit careless.
Overall we had fun making the models. This is a great activity for kids but you need to be careful with the hot glue gun. You can buy Kokoru products at Evergreen stores.
