We had to use designer paper for the CAS challenge this week, so I chose some bright orange paper to make the middle concertina bit of this Chinese Dragon puppet. I had great fun doing this - it took me back to my primary school days making Chinese lanterns and the like!
I found a dragon image on the internet which I printed off and cut out, then inked two wooden toothpicks with black ink to make the handles. You can't really move this puppet 'cos it's stuck on the card, but never mind! It's for my friend whose husband is Chinese - they always celebrate Chinese New Year in style!
Thank you so much for stopping by to look!
