Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Paper Cat Shapes

Print the Black Cat Craft Template and staple the pieces to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble this Pet Craft

I recommend having a finished cat so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. Place your handprint upside down. Then, glue the head onto your thumb.
  2. Glue the white muzzle onto the bottom of your cat’s face.
  3. Glue the pink triangles into the ears of the cat.
  4. Next, glue the eyes above the muzzle, make sure to leave room for the nose.
  5. Glue the last pink triangle between the cat’s eyes to make its nose.
  6. Glue the black oval feet onto the bottom of each leg.
  7. Glue the tail behind the back of the cat.
  8. Use a marker to draw a mouth onto your cat.
  9. Optional: Glue the bow anywhere you like on your cat.
  10. Don’t forget to write your name on the back!
