this looks more like question, but what you need to do is:

  1. Copy all the frames
  2. Create a new symbol( Ctrl+F8 / CMD + F8 on mac )
  3. Paste all the frames
  4. Maybe add a stop on the first frame of the animation, then Convert the animation to a Movie Clip.

Also it might be handy to use Edit Mutliple Frames in conjuction with Select All to move the whole animation inside the symbol to get the right registration point.

I've recorded a quick screen recording and uploaded it here. Goodluck!

Forget about the actionscript bit in the video btw :)
