STEP 3

Put the modelling compound onto the plastic folder and roll it down flat using a rolling pin to a thickness of 8mm.

Cut out the outer shape marked with red outline using a side cutter. Carefully mould the edges with a bit of water to smooth them down as shown in the illustration with this step.
STEP 5

Use a small glass with an approximate diameter of 4cm and place it over the centre and cut into the plastic compound to create a hole as shown in the illustration with this step.
