Challenge 8 - Make it Move!!

Me again...and this time i'm here to set my first Challenge! I'm calling it Make it Move because that is what i challenge you to do...make something with moving parts. Ok, stop panicking it doesn't need to be difficult...and i have several examples to get you thinking.

First of all I want to stress that this competition is open to all papercrafters, your entry can be an ATC, a card, a scrapbook layout or even an altered item. Secondly, you need to send your entry before next saturday to us by e-mail and you will be entered into the monthly prize competition. Thirdly, just leave a comment to let us and others know that you've entered so that we can all admire your work!


Here are my examples, all made using the HOTP Personal Shopper Kits and i'll start with the simplest one first!

This card is made with an apperture cut into the front and a metal charm suspended into the gap with a series of jump rings. Obviously, it moves because it is hanging free!











This second card moves by *popping-up* when you open it..scary stuff, eh? and very suitable for a Halloween card i thought!

Finally, i have made a couple of waterfall cards. The first one opens to the left and the second one opens to the right! No reason...just for fun!













For those of you who have been lurking on our forum this is the card that I won the crop competition with this month! I made it for a friend who started a new job and she seemed to like it too...so i'm quite chuffed with this one (its all from the HOTP PS Kit)














My final example is a very sweet baby card that i made (also from the kit!) for a friend who has just had baby number 2...this card is going all the way to Hong Kong!




























So there you have it...my examples and my Challenge...go on give it a go...you might even win!!

Thanks for a great challenge-some great looking cards Alix. I've just emailed mine over-made a Christmas decoration using a medallion stamp, which has a moving central piece.
Looking forward to next weeks!
