  • Step 1Download the template and print both pages onto white paper. We recommend cover paper as this provides a great surface for decorating.
  • Step 2Use pencils to colour in the 2 images of the lion.
  • It’s best to use contrasting colours for each image to enhance the final product. We suggest matching softer colours with the placid lion and stronger colours with the roaring lion.
  • Step 4Cut out your pictures and then cut along the dotted lines to turn them into strips.
  • Step 5Cut out the grid on the first page of the template and fold the grid accordion style as pictured
  • Step 6Glue the picture strips onto the grid in their corresponding sections (simply match the 1,2,3,4 and a,b,c,d printed along the tops of the strips and grid).
  • Step 7Stick the flaps onto either side of the folded grid flat onto an A4 piece of cover paper so the concertinaed paper sits up.
  • Step 8It’s time to view your masterpiece! As you move from one side of the artwork to the other, the individual lions should present themselves!
