Back your panel with black card by using double sided sticky tape (DSST) to adhere it onto a piece of black card - leave a small even margin on two sides, then using a paper trimmer, trim the remaining two margins to the same size (see pictures for guide).
Gently tear two panels of card. Firstly your green piece (approx 16cm x 9cm before tearing). Hold the piece of card in one hand, and with the other hand tear off the edge, pulling upwards (as per picture) to leave a mulitcoloured tear line. Turn the card around and tear off the other side in the same way. Finished width should be approximately between 6cm to 7cm in diameter. Do the same wth a red piece of card (approx 16cm x 6cm before tearing). The finished width should be approximately 3.5cm and 4.5cm in diameter.
