We are back on track with Tutorial Tuesday!
Remember this cutie we posted on our Facebook page during CHA?
Here he is at an angle so you can get the idea of all the layers. He’s a beauty!
WELL, the most awesome Designer Lydia Jackson who created this gorgeous owl using our Spotted Cardstock recreated a pattern JUST for you!  How cool is that?  PLEASE give her a HUGE Hard Core Thank you!
To create this owl that you will need are 3 colors of Core’dinations Spotted cardstock, black cardstock and a little yellow cardstock for the eyes, 2 black buttons and 3 types of Queen & Co washi tape. Tools: scissors, pinking shears, a crimper, Sand it Gadget and a Dust Buddy, Zap Dots and a Glue Arts tape runner.
1. Print the owl part images on 8.5 x 11 paper and then use them as a template to cut matching color cardstock. See below.
2. Sand all elements and wipe off with a Dust buddy
3. Fold and stick  Queen& Co. washi tape around the lower portion of the eyes. I trimmed the ends of the washi tape with pinking shears, but most any decorative edge scissors will work.
4. Assemble the head with eyes and then beak and then using pop dots, pop up wings and and pop up head I used a thin pop dot on the wings and a thick dot on the head.
5. Create his chest feathers using this technique { here is this link http://lidibids-scrapnotions.blogspot.ca/2010/07/quick-leaf-tutorial.html }
6. And lastly cut or punch two hearts for feet.
Here are your print outs:
PLEASE NOTE: you may need to resize this print out on your own computer. Lydia’s orginal owl is 8″ but you can resize it to any size you wish. Just right click on the image, and click save in order to save it to your computer. We kept them sized as big as we could to fit on the blog (you will notice that they are larger then the screen) in order for you to be able to size them accordingly on your computer at the highest resolution.

a HUGE thanks to Lydia!
