Bunny ears step 1

STEP 1: Print out templates and cut out.  Pin templates to felt and cut out (2 of each oval shape, one circle) .  Cover surface with parchment paper and brush Fabric Stiffener onto both sides of felt pieces.  Lay pieces on a clean sheet of parchment paper until dry to touch, at least several hours.
