Get Started!

Begin by cutting one strip of the red cardstock a little over 1″ wide (about the width of the ruler) and 5″ long.

Next, fold a small piece of the white cardstock in half and cut a heart shape in the paper, approximately 1.25″ wide.

Cut a small feather shape from the remaining white cardstock.

Cut a small strip of golden yellow cardstock for Tyto’s cloak embellishment.

Next, glue the feather to the top middle of the heart shape.

Put glue on the same side as the feather, and flip it over to paste it on the red strip. The two round shapes at the top of the heart should line up with the top of the red strip.

Paste the golden yellow strip to the red “body” at a slight angle. Trim the edges to fit.

Use the red gel pen to add a red tip to the feather.

Next, you can begin by lightly tracing the shape of the beak and eyes as guides. (This page has a number of images of Tyto for reference.) Use the black gel pen to draw Tyto’s eyes, and the gold pen to draw the beak.

Use the blue gel pen to make Tyto’s irises, and the black pen on top for the pupils.

Next, use the gold gel pen to draw the design on Tyto’s eyes and face. Outline the entire heart shape with the gold pen as well.
