Use brown acrylic paint to paint canvas mouse. While still wet, dab pink paint inside ears as shown. Allow to dry. Cut
leftover shapes from patterned papers of choice, then use Mod Podge to
adhere shapes as shown or as desired. Use fine-tip marker to draw fauxstitched
lines around paper shapes. Use embroidery needle and black
twine to sew whiskers, two black beads for eyes, and button nose as
shown. Use copper glitter glue to edge around ears, then tie a bow from
green grosgrain ribbon around tail.
