Here's how ...

  1. Cut a strip of paper or thin card approximately 24cm x 7cm.
  2. Fold into four sections so that you have a concertina of four 6cm x 7cm rectangles.
  3. On the top section, draw a lion as shown. Make sure that the lion's body touches the left and right-hand edges of the rectangle.

  1. Cut around your lion design, making sure you leave a piece uncut at each side, so that your lions stay joined together.
  2. Open out and colour or decorate the four lions however you wish.

  1. Repeat to make a frieze of any length by joining the blocks together, and display on a wall.


Use longer strips of paper and make more folds to make more lions at a time.

Use larger paper to make larger rectangles and, therefore, larger lions!
