How to Make

Bunny

  1. Turn the blue paper bag upside down, so that the flap is facing you. Cut out all your template shapes on the correct coloured card.
  2. Glue the two pink ear shapes on top of the two blue ear shapes. Glue the bottom of them to the top of the back of the bag. Place the pink paw marks on to the two blue feet into a paw shape, and glue them in place. Glue the feet at the bottom of the bag, angled outwards a little bit. Glue the pink belly in the centre, above the feet.
  3. Use a black pen to line the bottom of the cheeks, so that it looks like the top lip of the mouth. Draw a black line in the middle of the teeth. Glue the teeth at the bottom in the middle of the cheeks, so that the teeth are coming out of the mouth.
  4. Glue the pink heart in the centre of the cheeks. Use a black pen to draw three black dots on each cheek. Glue the cheeks halfway down the flap of the bag. Stick the wiggle eyes on.
  5. Cut six pieces of pipe cleaner to 6cm long, four blue and two white. Glue these onto the cheeks, placing them as whiskers, three each side. Place the white ones between the blue ones.
  6. Glue the white pom pom onto the back of the bag as a tail.

Cat

  1. Turn the yellow paper bag upside down, so that the flap is facing you. Cut out all your template shapes on the correct coloured card.
  2. Glue the two pink ear shapes on top of the two yellow ear shapes. Glue the bottom of them to the top of the back of the bag. Glue the white belly shape to the centre of the bag, the straight edge sitting at the bottom.
  3. Glue the white mouth shape halfway down the flap of the bag. Glue the pink nose at the top of the white mouth shape. Use a black pen to draw on the mouth.
  4. Cut four pieces of black pipe cleaner to 5cm each. Glue them onto the white mouth shape, two each side, placing them as whiskers. Stick on the wiggle eyes.
  5. Glue the tail onto the back of the bag, so that you can see the tail sticking out of the side from the front. Glue the white tail tip onto the tip of the yellow tail.
  6. Glue all the orange stripes onto the correct places, which are labeled on the template.

Dog

  1. Turn the orange paper bag upside down, so that the flap is facing you. Cut out all your template shapes on the correct coloured card.
  2. Glue the back ear shapes at the top of the back of the bag, tilting outwards. Then glue the front ear shapes on top, overlapping the corners of the bag. Glue the white patches onto the ears.
  3. Glue the brown eye patch on the flap of the bag, where an eye will sit. Glue the white eyebrow above it but slightly sitting on top. Then glue the brown eyebrow on the other side. Stick the wiggle eyes on.
  4. Glue the brown belly onto the middle of the bag, the straight edge sitting at the bottom. Glue the brown beard shape onto the bag at the top, underneath the flap. Then glue the white beard shape onto the back of the flap.
  5. Glue the moustache shape onto the flap, sitting above the white beard. Glue the nose in the middle of the moustache. Glue the red tongue onto the white beard and draw the mouth around it using a black pen. Draw a small line halfway down the middle of the tongue.
  6. Glue the tail onto the back of the bag, so that you can see the tail sticking out of the side from the front. Glue the white tail tip onto the tip of the brown tail.
