Here's how you make it...

1. To make the base of your card cut a rectangle no smaller than 7" X 11". Cut out your printed templates and trace them onto construction paper. You will need a head, hair and a shirt (unless you decide to draw these on yourself). Trace and cut out 2 hand prints, make sure you trace up the arm a little bit as well.

2. Fold your rectangle card in half. Glue your hair to your head and glue the head in the middle of the card on the fold.

3. Glue the hand prints into the shirt and glue the shirt onto the middle of your card. (You can personalize your shirt with markers or stickers first if you want).

4. Put on your eyes and face.

5. Fold the head down so it is hidden inside the card. Fold in each of the hand prints inside the card. Add a message to the front and/or inside and you're done!
