Trace the label patterns on colored craft paper of your choice. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.

Step 3. Attach the beak cutouts near the top part of the inner body pattern, between the 2 semi-circular ends.
Step 4. Attach the big wing cutout on the right side of the mother penguin pattern and attach the small wing cutout on the left side of the child penguin pattern. Use a sharpie to draw the eyes of the papercraft penguin patterns.

Step 6. Attach the papercraft mother penguin near the middle part of the card.
Step 7. Attach the papercraft child penguin adjacent to the mother penguin, on the left side. The mother penguin’s wing should slightly overlap the child penguin pattern.
