Funkie Junkie Challenge - Moving Parts

Our new Funkie Junkie Boutique is a fun one and I'm the hostess this time around. We want to see your projects with 'Moving Parts'!

Life can be busy and complicated with lots of moving parts. Sometimes we need to get really creative to make it all work! We would like to see you get creative with this theme and either treat it as a metaphor for something happening in your life or you can literally make parts that move as part of your project. Get crafty!

You can't beat the fun of shaker cards, so I created another shaker card for a birthday. The Cathedral Window is full of shakety bits and there is an additional pop up element inside!

Wobbler for the win!

A few details of how I constructed the shaker card front:

I cut the front of the window and then cut five additional windows out of chipboard. I used a craft knife to cut the chipboard insides out so just the outside frame was left.  I then stacked and glued those frame parts together.

I hand cut a thin piece of plastic for the shaker window and glued that on top of the stacked frame. Finally I could glue the decorative front window on top.

Here's a look at the background before I glued the shaker part on.
