Using Action Wobble Springs to Add Motion to Your Cards and Instructions to Make Your Own

In today’s video, I will show you a new product called Wobble Springs. They are perfect for adding motion to your cards. The Wobble Springs are the best ever and I highly recommend that you buy them. But, if you run out in the middle of the night, I will show you how to make your own using common crafting supplies. Also a special thanks to Emma from My Creative Time for the gift card idea! She is amazing!





Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Thanks for sharing this Linda. I'm going to make some of these cute wobbles. I would never have thought to make my own and I know I have some of that wire with my beading supplies.

Kate said...

What a fantastic idea!! I love that wobbling penguin and I can see so many possibilities with this. Thanks for taking the time to show us how to make our own wobble springs too.
I would love to use this suggestion and tutorial for Quick Tip Tuesday at Fantabulous Cricut. I'm sure there are many others that would be just as thrilled to learn this great new (to me!) idea.

Kate: I would be soooo honored! You made my day!!

Linda,
Thanks for the tutorial on making your own wobbles. This is wonderful, because these will not be out until January. So for those of us that didn't get them for trial, we can now use them for this holiday season. They do make adorable cards. Thanks again.

I am making penguin cards for my Grand babies because penguins was PaPa's favorite animal.

I have this wire so I think I will use your idea to make them wobble.
It will be so fun for them!!
Thanks for the great idea!!

Thanks for the video--I'm definitely a visual learner! I'm busy using your idea on birthday cards!!! I even made some in smaller sizes for a couple of rally small stamps that I want to "wobble". I've signed up as a follower--don't want to miss any of your great ideas.

Cheryl said...

Cute gift card. Love the wobble! Thanks for another fab video tutorial. There will definitely be some wobbling in my future cards. ;)

Sandra said...

This was a very nice video. At first I didn't know what a wobble spring was. Then I realized I had seen them before but didn't know the name. I have plenty of wire gauge around the house. I will try your tip.
