I saw the funnel templates and got very excited! Where are the directions for building it? You have instructions and a sample for all the other templates.

Hi - we added the funnel as a bonus piece to the template after we had completed the other pictures for the project, so we're sorry that it isn't shown in the pictures. To build it you simply cut along the dark lines like you do with the other pieces, then glue the shaded area to the tab directly across from it. The result will be a cone shape with a hole at the bottom that works as a funnel.
