In this example, some cardboard is attached to a paper cup to create the face of an owl, while two more cups make the moving eyes and winged body.
Add a servo motor to the base of the cup.
Place the trimmed inner cup inside.
Add googly eyes.
Googly eyes work well for this owl, creating a perpetually surprised look.
Cut a base out of another paper cup.
After the bottom has been removed, cutting a zig-zag pattern along the edge of the cup lends a feathery pattern to the animal.
Create two wings from scrap cardboard. Add feathery details with a silver sharpie.
Glue the wings to the sides of the cup.
