What you'll need

  • Talking Doorknob Template
  • Scissors
  • Craft or scrapbook paper (black and two shades of yellow or gold)
  • Glue stick
  • Tape or removable glue dots

How to make it

  1. Print the template and use it to cut out the shapes from the specified colors of paper. (Do not cut out the center hole in the doorknob plate yet.)

  2. Talking Doorknob

    Glue the keyhole plate to the doorknob plate, positioning it about 2 inches from the top and 1¼ inches from the bottom.

  3. Talking Doorknob

    Place the doorknob plate template piece atop the assembled gold paper door plate and now follow the lines to cut out the center hole, as shown.

  4. Talking Doorknob

    Fold back the side tab on the plate. Then glue the plate trim in place.

  5. Glue on the keyhole "mouth," eyes, eyebrows, and screws.

  6. Once you've chosen a doorknob to hang the plate on, gently separate the paper at the slit on the side and slide the plate onto the knob base. Then secure the tab to the back of the plate with a removable glue dot.
