How To Make a Sticky Note Lion Craft
1 – Cut out a large yellow cardstock circle. This can be any size you like. Ours was about the size of a dinner plate. (You can use an old cardboard box if you prefer because it won’t show as it’s the back of the lion.)
2 – The lion’s mane is made from rolled sticky notes. In the photo above, I’ve put marker pen on the glue strip so you can see how to orientate your sticky note. Put your index finger along the diagonal of the sticky note. Curl up the bottom and hold it with your thumb.
3 – Then curl over the glued edge to make a cone.
4 – We found it easiest to make lots of sticky note cones all at once. We used about 60 for our lion. It sounds like a lot but once you get the hang of it they only take seconds to roll.
5 – To make the lion’s mane, glue the pointed ends of the rolled up sticky note cones, all around the outer edge of the circle.
6 – Keep gluing on the rolled sticky notes until you’ve gone right around the circle. This is the outer edge of the mane.
7 – Now repeat the process with another ring of rolled sticky notes. Glue them slightly inside the first ring, to give a double layer. (We made our lion’s mane with two rows of sticky notes but you could add more or less as you please.)
8 – Once you’ve finished your mane, cut another yellow cardstock circle the right size to fit inside the ring and glue it in place. Draw on a nose and happy smile.
9 – Cut out two white round eyes from paper and draw on black pupils.
10 – Cut out two yellow cardstock ears and draw on an inner ear shape.
11- Finish off your colourful sticky note lion by gluing on the eyes and ears. Isn’t he just ROARSOME!
