On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Mugsy with puppetnetwork.com. Today, we’re making puppets. Ok, so the next thing that we are going to do in creating our Glabdarn Monster Puppet is we’re going to put in a mouth. So right about here is where you want to put the mouth, so lets say if you are a right handed puppeteer, you want to lay down your puppet so that at the right hand of the gloves is on the right side, and the puppets head is on the left side, ok. So that’s where we’re going to put the slit of the mouth. We’re going to take the scissor and we’re just going to cut a little slit now. Be careful not to cut all the way through. You don’t want to cut to the other side of the puppet. I’m just going to put a little slit right here. And we’re going to cut a long through the other side. Kind of ear to ear, almost. So you have that kind of deal, alright. that’s where we’re going to insert the mouth board for the puppet, you want to try to get it kind of wide, but you don’t want to go so wide that you’re going to pass the seam, and cut into the seam, you want to be real careful then, ok. And then you’re going to take your cardboard, your foam core rather, ok. And you’re going to fold it in half, that so. Alright now, remember those box cutters that I had you look at before? This is where you’re going to need those box cutters. Going to take your foam core and at the back of it, you’re just going to kind of cut half way through, you don’t want to cut all the way through because you don’t want to separate the two. But what you want to do is you’re going to create a little bit of give in the middle of board there, ok, because it makes the puppets mouth less stiff. Now in case that it does falls apart, what I simply do is, I simply take just a little piece of tape and complete advocate of less is more, especially when you don’t have money to create puppet. In that way, if ever that it does come apart at least you have that tape there holding it alright. And that’s going to be the mouth board.
