Download the bat templates here or by clicking the picture. Open it in Adobe reader (not in web browser) to get the correct scale. Print it out on a white cardstock.
Cut out the bat templates of assorted sizes from the printed white cardstock.
Each template is only showing half of the bat.
Fold a piece of black cardstock with the width of the bat template.
With both template and cardstock fold lines aligned, trace the template to the black cardstock by using a bone folder.
Cut the bat out with a pair of scissors, be sure that both layers are well aligned during cutting.
Trace and cut as many as you need to decorate your wall.
Use a rule and bone folder to make a crease line on the wings of the bats.
Fold the crease line to make a bend on the wings. Take note that the fold and bend direction of the wing is opposed the direction of the center line.
Attach a small piece of double sided tape at the center, remove the backing and stick the bats on the wall as they are swarming towards a direction.
