Video Tutorial: How to Convert Owl Box into Owl Card

So I really wanted to add this tutorial to my Owl Card post yesterday but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to finish it. I did managed to get it done today so here is the video tutorial for you:

(Tip: To get a clearer screening of the video, after you click on the Play button, change the setting from 360p to 720p HD:

You may notice that the method is very similar to popping up a butterfly wing. In case you missed that tutorial , you can read about it by clicking here.

By the way, I had also used Make-the-Cut to modify the cat from that Lettering Delights Animal Bags and Boxes SVG set..

Compared to the owl, it is actually fairly easy to modify the cat bag into a card as there is no pop-out element. The only difference is that when forming the card base, just make a copy of the pink cat/belly layer and weld it to the body of the cat. Make sure to align the layers first (Align Left, then Align Bottom), before welding.

I have not tried to modify the other animal bags in the Animal Bags and Boxes SVG set but I would think that it is possible to convert them into cards. If this tutorial has helped you to make your animal cards, do post a picture on my Facebook wall or point me to your blog post. If you don't have a Facebook account or a blog, feel free to email me too. This SVG set is one of my favorites and I would love to see the cards that you made out of it. :-)
