Draw out your own tartan using oil pastels or coloured pencils.
Cut a long strip of tartan paper, then a small chunk to begin each letter. Hold your paper carefully, and cut into it carefully, little by little, to make each individual letter.
As ever, when cutting a curvy shape, hold it carefully, and keep turning it, not the scissors. Make your letters a decent size to hold, to make it easier to cut them.
Keep holding your letter carefully, and keep turning it to cut good curves. The letter S is one of the trickiest, so just go easy, take your time. Start with easier letters, to build up your confidence and skill. You can do it.

Just the last part of the S letter - trimming off the ends.
And there you go! One of the handiest words in the Scots vocabulary! Hee-hee!
