A paper action figure like this could complete my wrestling toys

Step 1: You Need

Paper(lots)
Colors
Pencil
Toothpicks or Broomsticks
Glue or cellotape
The picture of the action figure(not nessecary if you're drawing).

Step 2:

Draw your figure on a piece of paper. Not nessecary if you have a picture. Make sure you sketch and seperate the body parts.

Step 3:

Color it and after coluring, erase the pencil part leaving only the color part, as shown in the picture.

Step 4:

cut it out and tape it together

Step 5: Finishing

Cut off the parts you want to move.

Step 6: The Figure.

Now, put your broomstick or toothpick in the body and the part you want to move.
Make it as perfect and faultless as you can. If it keeps falling out before you put the hand or the leg, wrap it with selotape(picture 2) Put it together and check if it moves. pic 3

Seems like this would be good for a stop motion animation short or animated gif. Give it a try.

Something like this

Use your camera to take shots of the paper cutout, reposition or move the figure a bit, take another shot. When put it all together in a movie or fast slide show, it looks animated or moves. You can also chain together several shots in sequence in an animated gif file which are like tiny movies. GIMP is a freeware graphics package to make gif files. The standard video/movie software on your computer should allow you to edit in a way to make an animated short.
