If your cardboard have prints on the outside you should:

1. Disassemble the cardboard. Look for connection on one of the cardboard's corner side. Use your cutter knife to break the connection or just tear it.
2. Reasseble the cardboard. Flip the inside - out. So now the inside (no prints) will be facing out. Use your duct tape to assemble the cardboard again.

See on the pic, my colleague's hand holding the flap with prints on it..
And see on the left corner there's brown duct tape lining.. a mark that it was reassembled.

Now, lets make Mr. Roboto come to life!

1. Draw. Use your marker to draw his eyes and mouth (and nose if he have one). Here his eyes and mouth are triangle. You can improvise with shapes. Also draw his facial attributes like eyebrow, lashes or whatever you want to put on his face.
2. Cut. Use your cutter knife to cut the lines and make hole for the eyes and mouth.

Additional:
See that Mr. Roboto have glowing eyes?!
Put your blinking light stick on the inside of the cardboard, where the eyes are. Stick it to place using duct tape.

Make this costume as easy as possible for your use. Since Mr. Roboto here still have to work all day at office and he needs his coffee too, so the mouth opening is adjusted for his convenience.

Btw, he really drinks through that thing :p

Ha, the picture with the cat is so cute! Was it hard to see with the stick light in the eye area?

Yeah hehe.. The cat's name is Luna.
Sticking the light was very easy, just use duct tape on both side.
