You Will Need
First glue together the three strips of 24" light green with the strip of aqua. Rip off 1 1/2" of the end of the aqua strip. Roll the 1 1/2" ripped off piece into a small tight roll.
This picture is of a different project, but the technique is the same. Roll the looooong strip of paper into a nice big tight roll, starting with the light green. When you have about 6" left to roll, glue the tiny tight roll that you made from the 1 1/2" strip somewhere on the circle. Then continue wrapping the rest of the aqua around until you finish it. Glue the end down. This creates a nice sturdy place to put your jump rings so you can make this into a pendant or keychain. If you don't plan on hanging this owl from anything, then just roll a large roll, forgetting about the tiny tight roll. Squeeze your finished tight roll so that it is a bit of an oval shape instead of a circle.
For the eyes, glue together a black, ivory, and deep aqua strip. Allow it to dry. Start rolling from the black end, and glue into a tight roll. Repeat for the other eye. For the nose, roll the 1 ½” deep aqua piece. Let it expand a bit into a loose roll. Glue it closed to the size that you want, and pinch into a triangle shape. Here are all of the finished pieces
