In this tutorial you will be learning how to make a sandwich hand puppet! This is a Super simple puppet to make, my favorite part is that there is NO SEWING involved! :) Here's some supplies you will need:
1/2" poly foam (white preferably)
Dark pink fleece
Light pink fleece
Craft eyes (mine are from out of the box puppets.com)
Brown spray paint
Lets get started!
Step 1: The Foam
So the first thing that needs to be done is we need to cut our foam into the shape of bread (see photo) once we cut our slices of bread out its time to use our brown spray paint and paint the foam on both sides. Let dry completely before proceeding.
Step 2: The Mouthplate
To make the mouth plate first take your foam board and measure the with. Then minus a 1/4" from each side. Measure the half way point on the length of the bread. Now trace 1/2 the length by the with onto your foam board and cut two out. Now leaving a 1/4" gap, tape the two pieces together. Flip it over and bend it over the ledge of a table so it gives you a L shape. Now put another strip of tape on. Trim the excess tape. Now take the contact cement and put glue around the edges of the mouth plate. Let glue dry tacky. Now put the mouth plate face down in between the two pieces of bread.
