Tape pieces of tape over that fold so it doesn’t come loose and now take the top and bottom ends and fold them towards the center; fold in half and you should get the shape of an accordion. through the ends of that figure you can put your fingers so that your puppet can speak.

Step 2. Garnish

Take the figure obtained in the previous step (fully closed) and cut a piece of paper of another color, but the same size as this one. Fold that paper you just cut in half, open it up, and put glue on it. Also unfold the accordion shape and add glue to it; Adhere the two figures. Take other pieces of paper and cut them into the shape of ears. Once you have them, fold the bottom part up a bit so they can stand up a bit and glue them to the top of the accordion figure along this fold so they stand up like rabbit ears. Take white paper and cut out eye shapes by making pupils with markers and glue them below the ears. Also, using black strips you can make the mustaches and a ball to be the nose. Ready, to play with your paper puppet.
