Today I wanted to show you this cute card I made using Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker LLC paper ("Willow Bee" line), the cute bee cut from a Sizzlit die, with a bit of wobble added to the bee by a spring-based wobble.
Because I wanted the bee to "pop" from the paper more than a traditional Action Wobbler, I developed a homemade wobbler using a spring and pieces of foam mounting tape and small pieces of acetate or tape to hold the spring to the underside of the foam (which has double-sided adhesive).
Here is a video I made about this process.
For those who'd prefer photos not videos, here are a few along with a little description of each:
|This is what a traditional (purchased) Action Wobble looks like.
It has a plastic spiral between two flat, clear adhesive oblique-shaped
pieces. They lie very flat (1/8" approx) so don't add much dimension
to your card or project.
|I first tried making my own using 24 gauge wire that I twisted
around a pencil, and mounted to foam mounting circles.
I found the wire to be too stiff for a really "giggly" wobble.
|Here's the outside of the card.
|...and the inside. I typeset the sentiment using
Adobe Illustrator on my desktop computer,
and printed it on the cardstock used for the
card. The snip of a hive is from Nikki Sivils paper.
