Cardstock Robots with button parts


Materials required
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Various Cardstock (the shinier the better)
  • Assorted Buttons
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Sticky dots
  • Scatter stars (or sticker stars)
  • Black heavy paper for background

1.  Firstly cut out a oval head shape. 
2  Just below the centre cut the oval in half
3  Assemble it so that it looks like the robot has an open mouth.  When happy glue it onto the paper....see below:

4.  Then cut out some feet, hands and a rectangle body. Place them slightly apart on the page and glue down
5.  Between the body and hands/feet glue down pieces of pipecleaner.  You can twirl them if you wish.
6.  Stick on the 2 stickers for eyes and add some button eyes. 
7.  Cut a smaller rectangle and place it onto the body of the robot and then glue it down.  Add some buttons for the robot components and also glue in place.
8.  Finally add some scatter starts to the page so it looks like the robot is standing against a twinkling sky.  You can also add other items such as rockets etc :)
