Step 2: Getting Prepared

What you should do, is a bit of research. Grab some pictures, resources and start to visualize the final product. I've drawn a little sketch of the model to see what it might look like.

Step 3: Starting to Shape the Model

Ok, the first thing to do is to grab the plastic cup, and start measuring it to work out the dimensions of the model, as this cup is going to go inside the model. Once the measurements are taken, grab about 3-4 sheets of newspaper and scrunch it all into a rough body shape. Once the shape is good, secure it up with a bit of masking tape. Repeat this exact process for the legs and tail.

Step 4: Making the Head

The head is a little trickier than the rest of the body. The head itself is triangular shaped, so aim for a rounded triangle that should be a tiny bit smaller in width compared to the body.
Once the head is a nice shape, secure it with masking tape. Now for the ears, it takes practice to get them nice, but a good way to get the pointy shape is to fold up half a sheet of newspaper into a nice thin strip. Then fold it around to make a triagular pyramid shape.
Once this is done, secure it with masking tape and make a second one. Finally, place the ears on the head respectively and stick them down with masking tape. Use a fair bit of tape to help "blend" the shapes into the head.
Yes!!! New favorite thing ever! Great job!
Cute and handy. :)
Hopefully it can with stand water.
Might be a bit difficult considering its paper mashe.
