Step 1. Cutting Out the Owl Decoration
Upload the owl body. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Once you have uploaded the SVG file into design space and have checked to make sure it is ready to cut, click on "Make It".
The next screen that will appear is the "Prepare" screen, if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the Pumpkin Orange Cardstock I used is medium weight, I would type in the browse all materials "Medium Weight".
Next upload the owl outline. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Then upload the eyes (sunflowers). Check to make sure the size is correct.
Select all and attach. Change the dotted lines from basic cut to score lines.
Upload the wings. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Upload the wing outlines. Check to make sure the size correct.
Upload the beak. Check to make sure the size correct.
Step 2. Assembling the Owl Decoration
Starting with the owl brown piece
Take the owl outline gold piece
put glue on the back of the gold piece of the owl outline and then glue it to the brown owl piece.
Next take the four (4) sunflowers
using a shaping mat and tool shape each of the sunflower pieces.
after you have all four (4) pieces of the sunflowers shaped, take two (2) of the sunflowers and glue them together
Once you have both sunflowers eyes glued, then glue the black pieces in the middle of each eye
Next glue the brown pieces on top of the black middle pieces on the eyes
Take the wing outline pieces and glue them on to the wing pieces
Place the eyes, beak and wings on the owl to see where they should go
Once you see where they wings go, using foam glue dots place them on the back of the wings
Continuing adding the wing pieces to the owl until they are all added.
Once you have the wing pieces added, glue the eyes on and the beak.
