Step 2:

2. Find some used paper cups.

Step 3:

3. Each head needs two cups. One is used as the base for ventilation.

Step 4:

Step 5:

5. Cut the shape of arms with a thin but tough piece of paper and attach them to the paper cups with double-sided adhesive. Note that the length of the arm is the maximum working range of the two cups. After sticking the arms to the cups, you need to overlay two cups, and fold the arms.

Step 6:

6. Reverse Airblock’s blade modules, and then fix the paper cups to the blade modules. So that when the motor starts, the propeller will blow air into the paper cups, pushing the upper one to move up and down. Combine different cartoon images, you can design more interesting dancing paper cartoon dolls.
