Little Yellow Owl Tutorial

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.

Owl Tutorial

Breakdown of the design

Materials:

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Kokoru Ichi
  • Kokoru Hachi
  • 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.
