Face and ears = 11 inches in width
White eyes = 4 inches in width
Black eyes and nostrils = 3 inches in width
If not using the print and cut option, print the PDF and cut pieces apart.
Trace the paper plate on a piece of brown paper. Cut the circle from the paper.
Cut slits around the edge of the edge.
Glue the paper to the paper plate with the edges overlapping as needed to fit the curve of the paper plate. Allow the plate to dry completely.
