Allow the paint to dry for a minute or two, and then cut the shape from the white craft foam.

Next, peel the backing to stick the white foam shape on top of the black shape to make the squid. Cut the black outline to fit if adjustments are needed.

  1. This looks great! ^O^ I was thinking of cosplaying an inkling, and I wanted to add the hair clip to it. This is great! ^O^ Do you mind if I use the template to cut it out with an electronic die cutting machine to make it out of paper? Just curious! ^^

  2. This is really neat! I love playing Splatoon and always will! I absolutely love your creative ideas, specially for all the pencil holders and all those container stuff. Even though I am older, I still want to make them because it will help my room be a LOT less of a mess!
