We started by cutting a toilet roll tube into .5" strips.
Then following the instructions on the blog we folded and bent the strips and carefully stuck them together with tacky glue.
We then added a tongue cut from a scrap of red felt and pom poms for eyes and a nose. Unfortunately we didn't have black or brown pom poms so our puppies had to make do with pink and white.
The puppies took quite a while to dry but once dry they are quite sturdy and stand up on their own.
