Cut through both sheets of paper as you cut out the shofar design, so that you have two identical paper shofars. Punch holes along the side edges of the two shofar pieces, then lace the shofar pieces together with yarn. Tape the party whistle into the narrow open end of the shofar. Insert half a empty toilet paper roll into the wide opening of the shofar to keep the horn opened instead of flat.
