I thought it would be cute to make a mini marionette with a little stage that would fit in an Altoids tin and could also be kept in there. So in the video I was being silly and my boyfriend thought it would be funny to post a video of that. Pay no attention to the video!!

Beads, Clay, paper mache ( I used a variety of beads but you can used whatever you want!)
Popsicle Sticks
Round Nose Pliers Pliers
Pliers (without grooves)
Wire Cutters or Snippers

Optional light:
LED Light
9 Volt Battery
Battery Terminals
Soldering Iron

Step 1: Make the Legs

To make the legs you need roughly 1" piece of wire.

1. Bend Wire around to make stop. You can use pliers to do this if need be.
2. Add Beads (a seed bead and 3mm bead)
3  Bend Wire
4. Add Beads (a 3mm & 4mm bead
5. Bend wire towards front of leg
5. Make a loop and Cut extra wire off
6. Repeat for other Leg

I like this! : ) My only suggestion is to add a resistor between one of the leads of the LED and the battery. Perhaps a 100 to 300 ohm resistor. Great ible 5 stars
hmmm... I think my boyfriend was trying to sabatoge my instructable or maybe it was because he wanted to go to bed late last night. After seeing your comment he said &quot;I knew you were going to get caught on that!&quot; Rrrr... wait till the next time he has an instructable or better yet maybe he will have to find his own dinner! <br>I'm going to add a picture of a resistor that he said would work but not perfect! I think it's going to be a little while before I can get him to resolder and take a new pic because he is working long hours :( <br>Thank You!!!
No problem! :)<br>
cute idea, entertainment to go!
Thank You! Old style - not quite like the nintendo ds :)
That looks like so much fun! What a cute little craft.
It's even better when you have someone to enjoy it with! Thanks!
I like the idea, I think I will use it some day. :) Thanks for sharing.
Hope you enjoy some day :) Thank You!
