What you will need
- Bostik Eco Stik
- 2 Paper cups
- 2x white A4 card
- Paint and paintbrush
STEP 1: GETTING READY
Make sure you have everything you need and find a clean surface to work on.
STEP 2: EYES AND MOUTH
Draw ghost eyes and mouth. These should measure a total of no more than 4cm x 4cm in order to fit the paper cup.
STEP 3: CUP PREP
Paint around the 2 paper cups the colour of your choice. Leave to dry before proceeding to next step.
STEP 4: THE LEGS
Cut U shaped legs all around 1 cup. These don’t have to be even in width but somewhat the same in height so they stand straight.
STEP 5: CUTTING THE A4 CARD
Cut the A4 card into 2cm thin strips.
STEP 6: READYING THE BOX FOLDER STRIP
Line up the edges of 2 strips and glue together.
STEP 7: CREATING THE BOX FOLD STRIP
Fold the bottom strip up and over the top one and crease. Continue to fold the 2 strips back and forth over one another till the end. Trim and use your favourite Bostik Stik to glue the ends.
STEP 8: ATTACHING THE BOX FOLDED STRIP TO LEGS
Glue one end of the box folded strip to the top of the legs cup. Try and keep this centred.
STEP 9: ATTACHING THE BODY TO THE LEG
Glue the other end of the box folded strip to the inside of the uncut cup.
STEP 10: CUT AND GLUE FACE FEATURES
Cut out the eyes and mouth and glue on the body of the ghost.
STEP 11: FINAL TOUCHES
Decorate the legs as desired. Gently press down at the top middle of the cup and release. Let the bobbing begin!
