Special Instructions: Follow the string path carefully in the first diagram for making the star points. To attach, pull one of the strands through the bead marked as #1 and do the same for the other strand on the other side. (Diagram 2). Next, add on beads #2 &3 and go through bead #4 & 5. Add on beads #6 & 7. Go back through bead # 6 & 5. Repeat this process on both sides until the two strands meet. Pay close attention to the string path for the 3-D nose. Add the extra 2 white beads plus a black. Go back through the two white beads, then add on the mini orange bead and go back through the two white beads again. Then using one stand, weave through each set of 2 beads to attach. Tie a knot where the two strands meet.
