Peek a Boo Cats

halloween paper crafts

Here’s a variation on my Black Cat Collage project that plays with the idea of peeking cats. Good orange paper will really have the most impact.

MATERIALS

  • Orange scrapbook paper, 12″ x 12″, from JoAnn’s
  • Black card stock paper, 8.5″ x 11″
  • Yellow card stock paper, 8.5″ x 11″
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White pencil crayon
  • Paper cutter (optional but helpful)

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. PREP: Cut orange paper in half to make 12″ x 6″ panels. Cut lots of black paper into quarters (5.5″ x 4.25″) about 4 or 5 for each student. Cut the yellow paper into about 1″ x 2″ strips, about 4 or 5 for each student.
  2. Students draw the simple outline of their cat onto the black paper and cut it out.
  3. Eyes are cut from the yellow paper and glued onto the cat. The middle eye line is drawn with a black marker.
  4. The mouth and whiskers are drawn with a white pencil crayon.
  5. The cat is placed on the orange paper, at an angle, from the side of the paper. It’s glued on with a glue stick, and trimmed.
  6. The steps are repeated to make more cats, with possible tails added in between.
