Steps to make this L for Lion Craft:
Print the Craft template on an A4 or Letter Sized paper. Cut out all the parts – the head, the ears, the mane, the whiskers, the mouth, and the nose. Use these cutout templates as your reference points and trace onto Felt. We used a 2mm stiff felt to make this craft. Alternately, you could use construction paper or craft foam in similar colors.
Glue the yellow head on the CD first. Then add the mane on the front and ears on top of that.
Finally, glue on the nose, the whiskers, eyes & mouth.
