Use crayons to create the lion’s mane fur. We used shades of red, orange, and yellow.

Make fringe around the lion’s mane with scissors. Cut lengthwise the entire way around the cupcake liner. You can check out the pictures to see exactly what I mean.

When you’re finished, all that’s left to do is to glue the lion head onto the mini paper bag. Make sure that you glue it on in the right direction so that when you put your hand inside, the lion’s mouth moves.
