The ambiance is full of joy and pride when the greeting season is just around the corner. Christmas songs can be heard from all corners and my spirit of making handmade as Christmas gifts have lifted. Therefore, I made some Christmas gift tags, greeting cards and general tag from the Olivia the owl pattern which I have designed more than a month ago. The wings of the owl are rotatable and it is damn cute when it poses in the different wing position. It is a kid do-able craft, let the kids try to make the owl tag while you supervise them 😀

Instructions with pictures to assist in making Olivia Owl Tag
Trace and cut out the templates from your planned card stocks. Optional, punch holes in the “feather pieces” (Blue and Red pieces shown in the picture) with a small hole puncher, otherwise, you can stick some rhinestone or just leave it as it is.
To make the Christmas Olivia Owl, you will need to cut the Santa hat too.
If you want to let Olivia Owl sits on the tree bunch (eg, on a greeting card), trace and cut out the tree branch template too.
Place the wings on the owl to get the position you want, make a small brad pinhole through the wing and the body by using the sharp tip of a pair of scissors.
Install the 5mm brad pin to attach the wings to the body.
Install the 8mm brad pin as the eyes of the owl.
Glue the Santa hat to the owl if you haven’t done so.
Make Snowflakes Tag
Adapt the same method but use various cardstock to come out with a different design of Owl Christmas tags.
Use the same owl pattern to design greeting cards.
Or, simply use the owl alone to be the tag.
If you are amateur in sewing, you could sew the Olivia owl pattern into a charm by using felt, or, leather for more luxurious charm.
