Check out this cute little owl card. It’s very easy to make so you’ll probably want to make a few of these at a time. The samples I’ve made are for Valentine’s Day, but the cards could easily send a birthday, get-well, graduation, or anniversary message.
- Brown, tan, white, navy construction paper
- Pink, red, lavender construction paper
- Owl (Pattern)
- Owl eyes (Pattern)
- Owl front (Pattern)
- Black Sharpie
- Glue stick
- 1″ Google eyes (optional)
- Glitter glue (optional)
- Copy the owl pattern on brown, tan, white or navy paper
- Copy the owl eyes on white paper
- Copy the owl front on pink, red, or lavender paper
- Cut out the owl, owl front and eyes. With the ruler as a guide, run a dull pencil over the dotted lines across the top of the owl. Fold the top down toward the owl. This forms the ears and beak of the owl.
- Glue the belly circle on the owl, using the dotted lines as a guide.
- Fold the beak piece down over the circle and glue. Glue the eyes over the turned down piece, using the dotted lines as a guide.
- Write a Valentine message on the owl front. (Below are some suggestions or make up your own.) Also add hearts and flowers around your message.
- Optional: Using glitter glue, outline the words, hearts and the eyes. Fill the eye pupil with glitter.
Valentine message suggestions:

I’ll be using these for an earth day project with my toddlers- Look Whooo’s Recycling. We’ll use magazines and newspapers instead of construction paper 🙂 Thanks for the template!
I’m going to use the pattern to make a cover for a little photo album for 3 year olds. “Whoooo… loves me?” Parents can add pictures at home of friends, and people in the family. I will use zip-top bags as pages so the pictures can be added easily, and kept clean and nice. Hopefully it will encourage language development by learning to answer “”Who?” Thanks for the great idea/inspiration!! Read the book, Wow! Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood -so cute!
I am using this owl pattern to make gift tags for my granddaughters Harry Potter birthday party. Presents will be wrapped in brown kraft paper, tied with twine, and “delivered by owl.” Thanks for this easy and quick gift tag for her party. She will love them!
Thanks so much! I’m going to use this pattern to make birthday invitations!
