The Lollipop Ladies had a challenge this fortnight using Push Pops and and added challenge of adding movement to your item.
I went to the Splitcoaststampers. I found the tutorial for the card with the mechanical iris and followed the instructions......and looked at the video.......and read the comments after the video ..........and went back to the instructions ......... and fiddled and fiddled until I got something resembling the eye mechanism.
I used SU card, papers and stamps and very quickly tried to put together the outside of the card - mine is not very good and getting the circles to match the eye was fraught with danger!
Then I wasn't sure about the closure - if I closed it too much the lever didn't work. So I ended up half closing it. Not sure why we had to cut the half circle out of the corner - wouldn't in the next one.
Anyway - have a go - your's will be much better than mine!
