If you want to color the mouth take a piece of construction paper and fold it in half. Put the paper in the mouth and squeeze it down so it stays. The paper should have the folded side in the mouth.[picture1] Now cut around the mouth so there is a diamond/triangle shape in your character's mouth. Glue the diamond/triangle in the mouth, it should fit perfectly.

Step 6: COVERING THE BODY
