Crafty Creations Challenges: Move It!

This week, the challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges is: Move It! We'd like you to incorporate some kind of moving part on your paper-crafted creation. My current favourite way to add movement is adding a homemade "wibble-wobble" or spring to an image. 



Here I've reused a store's paper shopping bag by adding my wibble-wobble Paper Smooches puppy along with some fun patterned paper and a row of muddy pawprints. My wibble-wobble is simple to make with some dollar store jewellery wire and two small pieces of foam tape. A side view:



It's easy and fun to add dimension and movement this way! There are lots of other ways to add movement to a paper craft, too, so why not pick your favourite and join us this week? For more inspiration, be sure to check out the great projects from the rest of our design team. 
Since I've upcycled a shopping bag to make this, I'm adding this to the current Lessology challenge: It's a Wrap! 



Supplies: paper bag, white cardstock, Amber Ink bubble fizz green iPaper, Paper Smooches birthday buddies & All Night Media pawprint stamps, Memento tuxedo black & vintage photo distress inks, Sharpies, Spellbinder wonky reverse rectangles die, 20 guage jewellery wire, foam tape, black Enamel Accents, Spica Atyou clear glitter marker Pin It Now!

Oooooh....he's adorable! I love that he wobbles! What a neat addition to a paper bag!

Cute!! That's so cool that he's a wobble. How do you keep the foam from popping off the wire (I tried it once and it was a popper not a wobbler)?

Have I really not been to visit your blog in over a month!! *Hanging head in shame* I have a lot of catching up to do. This bag is super cute and I like the paper you used with that PS dog. And your homemade wibble wobble is genius!
