  2. Use two plates per figure. Cut one in half following the curve. Staple, glue, or double-stick tape it onto an uncut plate, matching the edges.
  3. Cut four matching strips of paper, and crease them into "accordion" folds for arms and legs. Glue, tape, or staple them to the back of the paper plate. Finally, glue on eyes, ears, wings, etc. Curl wire to form the cat's whiskers and glue them under the cat's nose.
