To make the head band, measure and cut a strip of cardboard that fits your head size, ensuring there is some overlap to join the ends together into a loop.

Use the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw and punch a hole where the cardboard overlaps.

Connect the headband together using a Makedo Re-pin and Re-clip.

Step 3: Attach

To connect the ears to the headband, use a Makedo Lock-hinge positioned on a right angle and connect the ears using Makedo Re-clips as shown in the image.
