Literary Origami – Well, That’s a HOOT Book Fold!

OWL book folding, OWL quotes and OWL jokes! Read on!

Book Folding – I’ve done two Owl books. The first one is a stylized ‘HOO’.

This is the pattern I used for the ‘HOO’ book. In retrospect, I think I would use more pages to make the letters ‘H’ and ‘O’ and fewer pages to make the owl.

I am both a night owl and an early bird. So I am wise and I have worms.
– Steve Carell –

You can’t hoot with the owls and then soar with the eagles
– Hubert H. Humphrey –

For my second owl book, I made just the owl and added some ‘fringe flower’ eyes and ‘paper curl’ ear tufts and wings.

The Owl pattern

I have learned that one of the most important rules in politics is poise – which means looking like an owl after you have behaved like a jackass.
– Ronald Reagan –

The wife and I dressed as the iconic Peruvian owls for Halloween.
We were Inca hoots.
– Author Unknown –

A devoutly religious cowboy lost his favorite book of scripture while out mending fences one day.
A few weeks later, an owl walked up to him carrying the scripture book in its beak.
The cowboy couldn’t believe what was happening. He took his precious book from the owl’s beak and raised his eyes to the heavens.
He said, “It’s a miracle!”
“Not really,” said the owl. “Your name is written inside the cover.”

    1. Oh, I think I can sink to even greater lows. “England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.” “But do they have kidney pie? Costs 3.1417 pounds sterling.”

    1. Speaking of Harry Potter, I’ve been doing Harry Potter LEGO sets. Finished the Hogwarts Express train at Platform 9 3/4, and have started one of three sets of sections of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Eldest daughter and her family built Diagon Alley. LEGO has been a great way for our extended family to escape the reality of a year of Canadian Covid lockdowns. (We are back into Step 1 lockdown again…)


      1. I’ve been hearing about the challenges Canada is facing, Margy. So sorry. But we certainly have learned how to self-entertain through this process, haven’t we. Building Harry Potter logo sets sounds like an excellent way. –Curt

    1. Thank you – but I think of myself as a craftsman more than a creative. I’m not very good at coming up with anything original – I just borrow bits and ideas from others!
