You can achieve this by fastening double-sided tape on the back of white paper and then cut out rounded lines (similar to the bacon, on page 39) that you fasten on the pink shape. If the white lines stick out, it is easy to do a clean cut or cut away the pieces. After that, fasten the salmon by using a piece of the double-sided tape on one of the sushi pieces.
