We have all seen those beautiful Origami Owl ® virtual lockets floating around Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. They are fantastic tools that designers can use to show customers what their “visualized locket” will look like or to create unique pieces for flyers, giveaways or other marketing materials. I personally use Microsoft Word to make all of my virtual lockets. It is easy to use and most of us already have it on our computers. I have been approached by many other designers who have no idea how to create their own virtual locket, and they have found this tutorial very helpful. I hope that you find it helpful as well (teach a man to fish…right?).
It really is extremely simple, and once you do it once or twice, you will be able to throw together absurdly gorgeous lockets in a matter of minutes!
