DIY Bowtruckle and Free Printable Magical Creature Adoption Certificate

My son got invited to a birthday party for a fellow geekling. Birthday invites are a good thing, right?
Except the birthday girl is one of my wonderful Little Leafers nature study students, as well as the daughter of a friend and fellow geeky homeschooling mom… so the gift should be somewhat personal.
And I had no clue what to get her!

Cue mild panic attack.
Then, Geek Dad shared a link to a fully awesome bowtruckle tutorial on their Facebook page.

(If you don’t know what a bowtruckle is, they are teeny tiny little magical creatures, that look like twigs and leaves, who guard the trees whose wood is used to make magical wands.)

I checked it out and I already had everything I needed in my craft supply stash. Score!

Total time it took to make was about 90 minutes, I could probably make one faster now that I’ve had some practice. In fact, I probably will make a couple more just because it was so fun and easy.

Since I’m giving this bowtruckle as a gift, I made a little magical creature adoption certificate to go along with it.
