First there is a clown that has hinged joints, using metal brads:
For this clown, the pieces are first colored, then cut out, and joined together. Notice that if you want to make a shorter clown, the same parts can be used, but without the upper arm and leg sections.
This was a really fun project to make. The clowns can be posed in various ways, and played with, so it is a craft that also can become a toy.
The second clown project is a simpler project, but also makes a moveable figure. The body is an accordion-folded strip of card stock, and the head is a cardstock circle, with a triangle hat. Both arms are made together as one long strip, that is taped or glued to the back of the folded body.
