So for the mini Mouse here are steps 1 and 2:-
For the body make a loose closed coil with a 60cm ( 23 3/4 inch) length of the brown 3mm wide paper. Pinch in to a teardrop shape with the centre of the coil close to the the pinch.
For the ears attach a 10cm (4in) length of the pink paper to 10cm ( 4in) of the 3mm wide brown. Then attach another 10cm (4in) length of pink to 5cm (2in) of brown end to end. Make the two joined lengths in to loose closed coils, starting with the pink, then pinch in to triangles (see page 14). Glue either side of the body along the top edge towards the pointed end, with the smaller ear behind the larger.
