Dancing Box Men

I knew a guy in high school who used to make little dancing box men. They were pretty awesome. If you follow these instructions, you too can make a dancing box man.

Step 1: Find a small cardboard box. Nerds candy boxes work perfectly for this.


Step 2: Open one end of said box so that all 4 flaps are perpendicular to the rest of the box.


Step 3: Dispose of the box's contents.


Step 4: Use a marker to draw a silly face and arms/legs on the box flaps.


Step 5: Yea!


For looping gifs that are actually well done (and other awesome art), see Anthony Holden's blog!

So simple! So brilliant!

I like that he's a hollow shell of a man, though.

I've never seen someone do this. I woulda skipped Step 3, however, and let his candy guts fall to the ground while he danced.
