1. Decide on a person to make. It could be anyone: yourself, a family member, or someone from your imagination.

2. Select a sheet of paper that will be the background you will glue down your pieces to.

3. Cut the sheet of paper that will become the head of your person in half. Then fold about an inch and a half on each end to form two flaps. Next glue the flaps down inward to your background, keeping the flaps close enough to each other to create a curved appearance facing outward.

4. Now it's time to give your portrait a personality. Create hair, facial features, clothing and other items; then glue them to the head and background.
