1       We need to start by cutting out a circle in your chosen paper or card.   We did this by placing a mug on top of the paper or card and drawing around it.  With your scissors cut out the circle

2       Next cut a piece the width of 2 fingers off the circle and put this to one side – we need this later so do not throw it away!

3      Time to make your mouse!

4      With some of the leftover paper cut off  a small strip about 1.5cm wide and about 7 cm long –  roll around your chosen finger and secure with tape and put to one side

5      With the remaining large piece of circle lay this flat with the back of the paper/card facing you and the straight edge at the top – secure the tail and the finger roll in the top left hand corner – just like our picture – and stick some sticky tape on the top right hand side, just go half way along

6       Now roll your paper into a cone shape, have your paper upside down with the sticky side on the right hand side, bend in the left-hand side so that you can stick the Roll into a cone, hold down to secure the tape

7      With the remaining piece of the circle that we put to one side earlier cut 2 small ears out, fold over and stick to mouse cone
