Line up the edge of the hand with the fold so that the folded edge runs along the pinky.

2. Cut out a bear head and ears from the same colored cardstock.

If you are making more than one card, you can use one ear and head template to trace onto more paper.

For the head, you can trace around a circle shape like a small bowl or paint bottle.
