Next sew the back panel to the side and top panels, making sure to use the color yarn that was used for a certain area; meaning use Royal Blue when Royal Blue was used and Robbins Egg for Robbins Eggs.

Repeat the same procedure as you just did for the back panel for the front panel.

Last add the ears as yarn stings. Cut 4 Royal Blue and 4 Robbins Eggs yarn strings that are about 5 inches long. Bundle them and pull them thru on corner above one eye and tie a string of Robbins Eggs around it. Repeat that for the other side to have 2 ears as yarn strings.

Finally, weave in all the yarn and place the tissue box inside the cover and pull the tissues thru the peaks opening. You are now done with the Owl Tissue Box Cover. Yay
