Create these sweet DIY Owl Notepads using your cutting machine! They make a sweet gift at Valentine’s Day or anytime of the year and are perfect for anyone who loves owls!
Every year, right around this time, I create a new animal notepad! I didn’t want to break tradition, so this year I created these sweet DIY Owl Notepads to add to my little animal collection! They are so fun to make and can be customized easily depending on what paper you use! They make sweet gifts for Valentine’s Day or any celebration and are perfect for anyone who loves owls.
Above you can see the owl notepads I created to give as small gifts for Valentine’s Day. Below I used the same SVG cut files but created very different looking notepads by using paper from an autumn-themed paper stack called “Woodland Forest” by American Crafts Pebbles.
I have also used these cut files to create Hedwig owl notepads from Harry Potter! Instead of a branch, I cut a small piece of cream paper and folded it to look like a letter. I added a small red paper circle to look like the Hogwart’s seal! As you can see there are so many fun ways to customize these cute notepads.
The Notepads measure 3″ x 5″ and are the perfect size to keep in your desk drawer, purse or display on your desk. The cut file, available in my Etsy Shop Designing Cheerfully, comes with cute little accessories like glasses, a bowtie and a heart so your owls will look different depending on what you use. You can also embellish them with stickers. I added a little sticker flower to one of my owl’s, you can see below!

I really had a lot of fun creating and assembling these. I don’t think I’ll be able to wait until next year to add a new animal to the group! If you have any suggestions for my next animal notepad, please let me know! I think a puppy may be up next!
