 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

So this probably fits in the motor forum as well as this one, but hopefully posting here will lead me to some help.

I'm making a little butterfly for my friend's kid that will flap its wings. It's going to be small, and I want to use a cell phone vibrate motor for it, basically have it act as a winch and pull a little string that opens and closes the wings. So, i need the motor to spin in one direction for a second, then stop for a second, then spin for a second, etc, repeating. Or, have it spin in one direction for a second, then spin in another direction for a second, then repeat. How would I accomplish this using basic electronic parts without needing a microprocessor like the Arduino? My electronics knowledge is basic, so I dont know what the proper IC or transistor would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
