It's a book! No, it's an OWL!

I think this Book Owl is very appropriate for my desk at Rice University - owls are the mascots.

I made it using a largish paperback, folding each page in half. Then I put heavy books on top of it and let it compress overnight. The covers had to be taped together so it would stay round. I had to play around with the pages, too so it would stay roundish. Then I just added the ears and wings, taping them between pages of the book. I curved the large colored paper eyes and taped them to the front.

Isn't he cute?
