Elmer's Glue

Black fine point marker

Directions
Print diagram below. Cut out pieces and use for templates. Trace the templates onto the colored cardstock, as indicated. Cut out.

*Use glue stick as much as possible. Elmer's glue will cause the card to "buckle" as it dries, because of the high water content.

1. Draw Mother Durga's face with a fine marker. Glue the face on the hair.
2. Decorate her face with jewels, rhinestones, etc.
3. Glue the gold band onto the red posterboard.
4. Glue the hair and head onto the posterboard.
