- Glue the bowtie around the top of the tube.
- Glue the head onto the top of the tp roll, overlapping the V of the shirt.
- Glue the hat onto the head.
- Glue the arms onto the sides of the body.
- Glue the feet onto the bottom of the tp roll, using the tabs to give them a 3D effect (fold the tabs and glue so the feet stick out
from the tp roll).
