  • Take a colour A4 paper, place it like a vertical rectangle on your desk.
  • Fold it from its right side’s bottom corner to the other corner by making a converse arrow-like triangle shape and leaving some space on the other side.
  • Fold the left-right sidewise over the previously folded triangle by making a straight rectangular base.

  • Grab a marker pen and draw cute eyeballs in them.
  • Attach the eyes to the bouncy circle of the square’s middle with the glue stick.
