You could say that today’s paper craft is looking quite “proud.” This new design is one that stands out, and is sure to make your next project do the same. Use this dazzling, die cut peacock to really draw the eye in your next crafty piece.
I’ve mentioned before that I have an interest in birds, and out of all the birds out there, peacocks may just be the most difficult to not take an interest in when you cross their path. Their colors alone are incredibly striking—but paired with their large size and long feathers—these birds are truly a marvel!
Since peafowl aren’t native to Utah, I have only ever seen them at zoos and farms. But, with the way they just roam the grounds at will, they really feel like “wild” birds when I see them.
Just for fun, I thought I would share a few facts about peacocks:
- Peacocks are a part of the pheasant family (a bird I’m much more familiar with, here in Utah)
- A family of peafowl is called a “Bevy”
- They are omnivorous birds
- Peacocks shed their train of feathers every year after mating season
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making this die cut peacock! I hope you have as much fun putting him together as I did. Be sure to share your results with me on Instagram!
