    Step 7: Stuff Your Sheep Crafts

    • The final step is to add a little “fluffiness” to your sheep craft.
    • Tear strips of newspaper and crumple them up.
    • Then place them one at a time in the opening that you left in the sheep’s body.
    • *Don’t overstuff, and you can use a pencil to push the crumpled up pieces into all of the sections of your lamb craft.
