Cards W/ Wigglers

7 posts in this topic

I have tried to search high & low on the internet of how to make cards/invitations with wigglers. Wigglers - spring loaded cutouts, shapes, pics that "wiggle" when moved. Does ANYONE know how to do this? I've got an adorable birthday invitation designed but want to add an eye catcher & thought this would be perfect.

My son is the prince of wiggler cards. :) The way he does them works pretty well. He just makes a little accordion of folded cardstock attaches one end to the thing he's having pop out, and the other to the inside of the card. He did one several years ago (he was about 9) for a Christmas card he gave my off-road racing brother-- it had a little truck that popped out of a desert scene in the card. My brother loved it. Hope that helps!

You may want to try a google search for "Dimensional Cards" ;)

Lots came up :) or 3D Greeting Card :)

You can also take a small wire and wrap it around a pencil like a spring, then poke a tiny hole in the card or cardstock and tape it on the back then put your item you want to wiggle on the other end and secure it with a little piece of good strong tape. Cause it will get wiggled alot. Hope this makes since and helps out.

Good luck
