  • Step 1

    Print the template onto cardstock and cut out all of the pieces. Note: the template is split into three pages, and the third page contains the pieces that will typically be printed on a contrasting colored paper, so you can print the first two pages on one color and the third page onto another color.

  • Step 2

    For easy folding, score the box along the dotted lines using a stylus, a ruler, and a small cutting mat. Use a bone folder to create crisp folds along the scored lines.

  • Step 3

    Assemble the main box according to the instructions found in the template. Assemble the owl’s eyes with glue dots or double-sided tape, using the diagram in the template file as your guide.

  • Step 4

    Attach the eyes to the horn template using glue dots or double-sided tape. If you’re making a snow owl , then you won’t need the outer eye template or the horn template, and you can attach the eyes directly under the front flap of the box. If you’re making an owl with horns, attach to the front flap after the eyes have been attached to the horn piece.

  • Step 5

    Attach the feather ruffle pieces using glue dots or double-sided tape. Start at the bottom of the box (attach the first ruffle flush with the bottom of the box) and space them evenly as you go up. Owls with horns will only need three ruffles, while the snow owl will need four.

  • Step 6

    Fill with treats or a small gift and seal the box shut using glue dots, double-sided tape, or even a small piece of velcro.

I saw these on the internet a while ago & have made them for really small gifts like handmade jewellery. They're really adorable & so easy to decorate. I cover parts of the card template with patterned paper before I make them up, it's really easy & effective. I just love them!
