The Only Thing Better Than a Friend

My wonderful friend, Tyra, hosted a wonderful swap, Chocostampaholics, focused on a wonderful food, chocolate. This is my contribution.

In order to figure out how to make it move, I had to take apart my beloved FIRE card by Mama Wolf, Wood6, CampFireLady, and Turtle Love. Fortunately, I was able to salvage the FIRE card and get my chocolate card moving.

I would tell you how to make a card like this, but it's kind of hard to explain. I think you're just going to have to get your hands on one of these and dissect it. It's easier to make than it looks.

I bit the bullet and took your card apart, too. Easily done, easily reassembled, thankfully. :)

My question for you is what kind of paper did you use for the mechanics? Do you think wax paper would work? I suppose I should just experiment a bit.

Thanks for sharing this!

I used strips from a trash bag, so I'm kind of worried about them disintegrating in the future. Carmen (Wood6) got her information from a website, but I've been unable to find it. I don't know what she used. I bet wax paper or sandwich bags would work.
