instructions
  1. Fox Design - 1 Transfer the fox template onto a folded piece of decorative paper. Layer up the legs, collar and tail in coordinating paper. Cut a shape for the head, adding a lighter shade of paper to highlight the cheeks. Add darker paper for the ears and cut out two circles for the eyes. Mark a black dot in the middle of the eyes.

    2 Cut three long, thin strips of dark paper, attach behind the nose, then top with a small button. Secure the head to the body with foam pads. Cut a selection of butterflies from decorative papers and attach to the card with glue. Trim flower stamens to size and attach to the butterflies for antennae, then paint the ends with acrylic pens.

  2. Hedgehog Card - 1 Copy the hedgehog template and transfer it onto decorative paper. Cut out both shapes and glue the head behind the body. Use a circle punch to create an eye and a nose, then attach to the
    head. Add a white highlight to the nose.

    2 Cut out a selection of paper butterflies and adhere onto the hedgehog, leaving the wings free. Trim flower stamens to size and attach to the butterfly to create antennae, then paint the ends with acrylic pen. Make a small top-folding card and glue to the back of the hedgehog.

  3. Badger Greeting - 1 Fold decorative paper in half. Transfer the badger template onto the paper with the fold at the top and cut out. Snip the head from contrasting paper and attach darker shapes to create the
    striped effect. Use a circle punch to make two eyes, add a dot of black pen to the middle, then stick to the face. Cut out and attach a nose.

    2 Secure the head to the body with foam pads. Cut butterflies from decorative papers and attach to the body. Trim flower stamens to size and attach to the butterflies for antennae, then paint the ends with acrylic pen.
