Cut out each segment using a pair of scissors.

Now we're now left with 4 sections.

We will now fold each section.

To begin, we will start with the body.

We're going to make a fold down the back of the body where the dotted lines show.

Turn over thepaper to make the folds on the dotted line.

Fold the tail-end and once you've done that fold the two black tabs, that will help to give support and keep the legs together.

Using the pritt stick add glue to each tab we need to fold around the tail and stick each tab underneath.

We will now put the body to one side to allow the glue to dry, whilst we work on the next segment.

We will now begin working on the necktake note that the dotted lines and turn over the paper.
