Cut along the outline made to make the peephole.

You may use a cutter if you find it easier. Just be very careful when handling sharp objects. Ask an adult to help, and do not let small children use a cutter on their own.

Here’s a tip: Cut a small slit at the center to make it easier to cut. Insert the scissors on the slit, then start cutting along the outline.
