First of all, you will need minecraft cutouts which are available on google images. The ones which I will use in this instructable are here.

Now Using a scissor cut out on the outlines of these.
And of course take the print of these first! 

Sorry about the pic, cause It somehow messed up.

Step 2: Folding

Now carefully fold the cutouts the way they are lined in the edges. Here's a small video about it.
Once you are done with that, we can move on to Sticking part.

Step 3: Sticking

Now over the white cutout parts, apply glue and stick them to their respective cubical shape. The following video will explain it very clearly. I used the pen as the glue to show you how to apply the glue and where.

Step 4: Making Joints

This is probably the most difficult part and with most people it will be hell.
You have to make now movable parts so that we can later change the Pose of the character while making frame by frame movie. 
Here is the picture of the finished step.

Tip- If ou want your joints firm, apply some glue at the interface of the hole and the toothpick.

Step 5: Making Movie Preface

Now, after you have added up everything. Lets begin animating.

Take a big open space which has a uniform background color. Now take your character and place him on the layout.
Also set your camera on tripod and take a picture. 
Tip- Use a remote to take camera pics as while taking pictures the camera might shake and distort the as it did for mine.

Also glue your character to the ground with some cheap glue which will come off easily cause you dont want to stick your character forever. It is just to make him stable till e take the picture.
