It’s a Cinch – A Wise Old Bookish Owl

There’s nothing like the joy of reading a great book.

Except maybe making something fabulous from a not so great book.

Pop Up Book Page Owl Silhouette - easy way to make your own!

I love all things Halloween – have you seen my Halloween house tour?

I mean, whoooo wouldn’t love this?

Pop Up Book Page Owl Silhouette - easy way to make your own!

How To:

* Trace owl silhouette onto a book page (pack of owls from the dollar store – or print your own pattern)
* Draw eyes with black marker
* Cut out the owl (I used a tiny cuticle scissor) – do not cut along the bottom of the feet
* Bend owl up – secure with a piece of tape to make it stand upright

Owl bet you never did an easier craft!

  1. Is it cinchy time again already?

  2. OWL Always LOVE all of your fabulous easy craft ideas and all of your others too! This is awesome just like you!!!! Sending hugs from CHILLY north jersey today! : ) You ROCK!

  3. Kelly…you “ARE” the wise owl….super, super cute idea….My daughter in law and granddaughter are owl lovers…I am so making this for them….thanks for the fantastic cinchy idea!!!

  4. Well, these are just the cutest things! And you were one clever wise owl creating them! :)

  5. SO of course I made a book page covered frame for my nephew and my aunt found the F word on it. I checked … your owls are g rated … and super cute!

  6. Now I want to turn every book I own into a pop up book. I’m pinning this. Might see my picture on the Library wanted list.


  7. LOL on Karah’s comments … because I had the exact same thing happen to me with a book page project! In fact, there were a few other “x-rated” terms that stood out on mine too!

    What a clever idea!



  8. That is super fun! Love this!

  9. I love the look of things made from books–but I can almost never bring myself to cut into them. I’ve bought some beautiful old books with the intention of doing something crafty, but I can never do it. I’m thinking the “not so great book” part is key to this project. :-)

  10. Thank goodness for super cute “g-rated” owls :) Hoo’d a thought :)

    Have a great day rock star!

  11. so cute! and those sugar cube letters…gott go see how those were made!

  12. THAT. Is adorable.

  13. These are so cute!! Love them!

  14. Adorable :)

  15. ok…incredibly cute!! The dollar store should love all of us crafters! I adore this project kelly! Bonnie 😉

  16. How fun is that? Love it :) Laurel

  17. Such a fun and cinchy craft! What is it about owls that so darn appealing? :-)

  18. That is so cute!!! I can imagine this for so many different things.. like Halloween, Easter, Christmas, just about anything! So fun! You could do them all in the same book and then just turn to the right one for the holiday :-)

  19. I love this fun idea! Come link up to Centerpiece Wednesday and share this with us.

  20. Sooooo cute. I hope you will stop by and link up at my All Things Fall Party!

  21. Super cool! My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
