For a thinner fish cut away the sides of the plate, leaving you with a nice curved fish shape. You can use one of the pieces you have cut from the side of the plate to make the fins.
Paint your fish with a bright, cheery orange. Cut little paper cupcake cases in half and flatten them slightly to make lots of colorful fish scales.
Starting from the ‘tail’ of your fish, stick down the paper bun case scales in columns. As you move towards the fish’s head adding new rows of cupcake liners, overlap them with the previous row. Keep sticking on scales to cover the whole body of your little fish.
Cut a large paper bun case in half and fold it in concertina folds to make a fan. Glue this to the back of your fish to make the tail.
Now glue on a googly eye and draw on a little smile to finish off your colorful fish.
