"You are a Hoot" Card

Bet you didn’t think another school stack would catch your eye—until you saw this one!! Newest in our line of stacks, the Edumacation stack, may flaunt traditional learning icons and cliché prints in “all-too-familiar” shades—but the vintage influence on modern elements makes just enough of a different to knock your socks off.

Project Instructions

Select two prints from the Edumacation Stack™. Turn the first one over and trace an owl shape on the back, complete with the head, wings, and feet. *Note: when making the head, the top edge will need to be a straight line. Cut the owl shape out.

Take your second print and trace the owl onto the back, adding a triangle that extends above the head (this will make the top fold of the card and give the front of the card more dimension). Cut out.

Take first owl piece and lay it in front of you with the print facing up. Cut two small triangles from a third print and, using the image as a reference, adhere them (one each) in the top corners. Select two more prints, and take out a sheet of glitter paper. Punch two sets of circles for each eye (1", 1¾" and 2" circle for each set), two of each size from each piece. Adhere these in place.

Take an additional print and cut a small triangle for the nose; adhere in place. Use this same print to cover the very bottom of the feet.

Punch out three sets of circles from three different prints and/or solids with the ½" circle punch. Arrange as desired on the belly of the owl; adhere in place.

Attach the second owl piece to the first by folding the triangle over the front of the card (print facing out) and adhere it between the eyes.

Cut out a tag from the stack. Add the words “You Are A Hoot” with alphabet stickers. Accent with rhinestones where desired. Adhere tag to the card on the inside of the back piece, ensuring your words are seen outside of the card.

Tips

Accent your owl card by adding white cardstock pieces to the eyes or by inking around the edges in a contrasting color.
