Steps

  1. Fold over the short edge of your card/paper up to about 9cm
  2. Draw a triangle and cut it out
  3. Unfold your shape and cut in half down the fold
  4. Fold a tab around 1cm wide at the bottom of each ear
  5. Using tape, stick the ears on either side of the top of the balloon and the whiskers in the middle as shown
  6. Draw and cut out a nose and whiskers
  7. Using tape, stick the whiskers on to your balloon
  8. Try adding more detail to the balloon using a marker pen
