Resources for starting an Owl Project
PAPERThe larger the paper the easier it is to fold an owl. I started people with 9 or 9.5 inch square paper. It is also easier to fold origami paper than paper from catalogues. But the catalogue paper is free and it is a beautiful way to recycle. You will have to make the paper square. The easiest way is to fold into a triangle and cut off the extra. My favorate catalogue is Serena & Lily furniture catalogue. It has wonderful colors and is made of high quality paper. I have also used flyers from the various museums in DC. Again, it is a great way to recycle.
