Sarcophagi & Mummies

Materials:
- Tagboard
- Sarcophagus Tracer
- Mummy Tracer
- Cardboard
- Scissors
- Yarn
- Masking Tape
- Pencils
- Crayons/ Markers/ Colored Pencils
- Egyptian references

1. Fold a piece tagboard in half.

2. Place tracer on edge of fold so when cut, it opens up like a card.


3. Design cover using references.

4. Color inside.

5. Trace mummy tracer onto a piece of cardboard and cut out.


5. Tape one end of yarn onto mummy and wrap around till the whole thing is covered. It may get tricky at the top of the head and the bottom of the feet, but get as close as possible.






6. Snip and tape to back. We just used tape rolls to tape to inside of Sarcophagus.
