Step 1: Done in 4 Steps

  1. Slide one spring to each of the copper sheets corner and fix them (either superglue, soldering or tape, as you wish...).

  3. Use super glue and paper tape to secure the motor.
  4. Attach the wire motor wire to the battery holder.

Now simply find materials you want to use to make sound and give it a try...
