|Cats, owls and fairies, and a x-mas tree.|
Can you spot the mouse in the one with the owls?
a soft pencil (so you can rub out any mistakes easily)
and a rubber ,
ordinary copy paper ( so it's easy to cut tiny snippets through 6 layers of paper)
and I used a saucer to get a quick circle.
Step 1: Draw a circle on the paper with the help of a saucer and cut out.
Everything that is on the edges of the paper will mirror image.
Don't worry, you will make a few mistakes, but the paper is really cheap!
|step 6, little details first|
|step 9, oops I forgot some details!|
I'll have to fold it up again and cut out his buttons and nose and mouth!
Now you can iron it flat (make sure your iron is clean).
Use it to decorate your tree or your window, or get it laminated to protect it from damp glass, or photocopy it with black paper behind it and make cards, book marks, make them smaller for labels.
And who says all the pictures have to be x-massy, make fairytales or easter themes, dancing children or flowers, teapots and cakes, babies and prams. Draw whatever you fancy.
The snowflake itself will make even elephants and giraffes look festive.
