New Years Eve, the end of another year and the start of something fresh and exciting. Sometimes the hours leading up to the much anticipated countdown can feel excruciatingly long. Here’s a little activity to fill in the time and provide plenty of giggles along the way...

Choose a piece of metallic Micador Create It Corrugated Board. On the reverse side, trace around your glasses template with a pencil.
Step

Step 3:

Using scissors, cut out your metallic glasses.

Step

Step 5:

Punch a hole on each side of your glasses. Cut two pipe cleaners to about 14cm long and thread them through each hole, and twist to secure.
Step

Step 6:

Create a slight hook shape with the opposite end of the pipe cleaner to sit over your ear.

Instead of hole punching at Step 5, you could tape a straw to the back of your glasses, along with a pipe cleaner star, and use it as a sparkly handheld mask!!
