Step 2
ADULT: Cut out the slit, using an X-ACTO® knife.  
Step 3
Fold and glue the box together. Apply the glue stick generously onto the tabs. Add the top to the box. 
Step 4
Trace and cut out the ears and nose from the scraps of Fussy cardstock. Color in the ears with a darker pink marker. Glue in place to the front, top of the box. Use image as a guide. 
Step 5
Color two nostrils onto the nose using a black marker. Adhere to the front of the box using the adhesive foam dots. Glue on the wiggle eyes using Elmer's® glue. Let dry. 
Step 6
Tail: Using the end of a pink chenille stem, gently push the wire into the cardstock on the back (opposite the face) of the box. Pull it back out and coil it around a pencil, then slide the pencil out of the coil so the coil remains. Insert it back into the hole and add some glue at the hole to help keep the tail in place.  
Step 7
Glue four white pom poms to the bottom of the box for feet, using Elmer's® Glue. Let dry.
