How to turn the seat into an animal face:


You have everything you need? Then get started!

Step 1

Take the children’s stool and place it with the seat on the gridded back of the Uni Matt sage green adhesive foil.

Step 2

Use the pencil to draw the outline of the seat onto the backing paper, draw a second outline with some allowance and then cut the foil piece to size.

Step 3

Now take the other adhesive foils and draw the shapes for the individual elements of the animal face on the respective foil back.

Step 4

Cut out the various foil elements for the animal face using the scissors.

Step 5

Next, remove the backing paper from the white foil piece for the animal snout and position the foil piece accordingly.

Step 6

Firmly press down the white piece of foil and then successively apply all the other foil elements for the animal face.

Step 7

Finally, remove the excess foil all around the edge of the seat.

Step 8

As an alternative to the black adhesive foil, you can also draw on the fine details of the animal face using a black permanent marker.

You’re done!
