Materials
Black card
Bat template
Pencil
Scissors

Method
Create a bat template, either through drawing one yourself, or downloading one, printing it and cutting out.



black card


Fold your paper or card in half and place the template on, making sure the correct side sits against the fold (I made about 50 of these bats for a party, and a couple of mine came out completely wrong when I didn't pay attention to the fold lines!)

Trace around the bat template - a graphite pencil will be fine, the shininess of it will show up on the black card.
