Start by piercing the plastic with your scissors. Then slowly make your way around in a straight line. You want to leave enough extra plastic at the top so you can cut your ears.

Step 3: Draw the Cat Outline

Now draw the outline of the cat. You can choose any animal you want, but remember to leave enough room at the top for the ears.

Step 4: Cut Out the Outline

Cut out the outline of the cat. Once you've cut out the ears the easiest method is two cut slits every two inches then cut across.

Step 5: Paint It

Paint it the colour you prefer, I went with a clean white. It took three coat to get it completely opaque. Make sure you let it dry between each coat.

Step 6: Draw on the Ears

Step 7: Draw on the Eyes

I drew on the eyes to make the illusion of sleepy eyes, but you can make them open if you'd like. I used a black fine liner for the step.

Step 8: Draw on the Whiskers
