Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Two lids from chips in a tube.


White cardstock

Glue gun

Black cardstock

For bigger eyes replace the chip's lids with white yogurt lids.
And the white cardstock with clear plastic from a packaging

Step 2: Cut

Begin by cutting a black cardstock circle. It should be smaller than the lid.

You can trace the outline of a coin or other round object to make the circle perfect.

Then put the circle on top of the white cardstock.

Step 3: Glue

Take the lid and put glue all over the perimeter.

Immediatly put the lid over the white cardstock, the black circle should be in the middle to avoid that it gets stuck with hot glue.

Step 4: Cut

Wait until the hot glue has cooled to cut the excess of cardstock.

Have fun!

That's it! Have fun playing with your googley eyes and put them everywhere!
