Tip of the Week - You Can Change

This SVG is a freebie from 12/8/10 from SVG Cuts. I liked the owl but did not like the stern look on his face and did not need the scarf, branch or claws. I wanted a more “cutesy” owl for my Family Collage. So I made a few changes in SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot) and here is what I came up with:

Here is how I took the stern owl and made him cute:

Step 1 - Import the file called "brown.svg" and "darkbrown.svg". Other files are not needed.

Step 2 - Select the brown elements on the right and hit break apart. Then select & delete the cut out of the eyes and the claws.

Step 3 - Now you have all the elements you need. You just have to add some circles for the eyes using basic shapes.

Here is my final collage. You can see all the details on the SVG Cuts Site - under Amy’s Corner.

And here are a few closeups for your viewing pleasure :)

Hope this gives you some insight into making slight changes to suit your needs!
