|Cut out the characters, the arch and the columns excluding the slits.|
|Make a column by adding glue to the end tab and curling the paper into a cylinder shape. If you find this tough then you can always fold the column in half, then half again to make a square pillar!|
|Carefully cut the 2 slits at the base and top of the column. If you do this before it weakens the structure and alters the shape.|
|Once you have both columns made take the arch and slide it into the slits from the top.|
|Slide the securing pieces in from the bottom so the arch lays flush against the ground.|
Glue your characters straight onto the columns to complete the craft
If you are using the finger puppets then cut paper strips to make supports for the solders, they are already the correct size!
