  • Apply glue to the extra 0.5-inch section and fold the glued section to attach it to the other open end of the folded brown paper.
  • Fold up 2 inches (of the 5-inch side) from any 1 open end of the paper.

  • Now, fold up the bottom side of the open end and overlap the middle line by a cm again. Both sides will overlap each other. Apply glue on the overlapped parts to attach them. This will secure the bottom side of the paper bag.

  • Now, open up the paper bag from its flattened position.
  • Fold in the side middle lines of the paper bag and flatten the bottom side.
  • Use scissors to cut a semi-circular shape on the top side of the paper bag. Cut out ear patterns (2 inner ear parts from dark brown paper and 2 outer ear parts from light brown parts) and 2 horn patterns from dark brown paper.
