STEP TWO:

Following the outline, use masking tape to adhere strips perpendicular to shape. (TIP: Curl cardboard strips into a tight spiral several times to make it more pliable and easier to crease at the corners.)

STEP FIVE:

Cut tissue into 1” strips and use scissors to fringe long sides. Starting at the bottom, apply fringe strips to llama front, stopping at head. Repeat on back. Trim excess fringe as necessary. (TIP: Fluff fringe as you work so it doesn’t stick to the immediate layer underneath.)
