Use Extra Template for Cutouts

Use the second copy of the template so you remember where all of the parts go when you start placing the cutouts on the lampshade.

Place Face Inside Lampshade

Stick the cutouts on the inside of a white or light-colored lampshade. You can temporarily tape the template to the outside of the lampshade to get the shapes in the exact spot to form the face.
