  • Step 1 Download and print our free template. Decorate the template and cut out along the dotted line. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors.
  • Step 2 Start with your design facing down. Fold the square in half, corner to corner. Open it back out and repeat with the opposite corners.
  • Step 3 Fold each of the corners into the centre point to create a smaller square.
  • Step 4 Fold this smaller square in half to create a rectangle and then open back out.
  • Step 5 Flip the square over to the opposite side.
  • Step 6 Fold each of the corners into the centre to create another smaller square.
  • Step 7 Fold the square in half to make a rectangle. Unfold, spin the square 90 degrees and fold in half again to create a rectangle.
  • Step 8 Hold the rectangle with your left hand and slide your thumb & pointer finger up and underneath the two flaps on the right side. Do the same thing with your left hand and the left side of the rectangle.
  • Step 9 Your Aussie Animals Chatterbox is now ready to use!
