I love these cute little Bee's and Snails and I was watching my fave person on You Tube and she had this fab idea of making "spring out" features on cards and so I had to give it a go.

I also found a way to make "Swing" or "turn" cards using just one piece of cardstock instead of the usual 2 pieces which join together. These are so much easier and nicer in my opinion as its quite difficult to get the cuts right on 2 pieces of card unless you have a template. I will not buy those as I think they are expensive for what they are -( Yes I am a scrooge !!

You need to use a thicker card though for these but I also found that by adding mats of papers it helped with the overall sturdiness of them.
