This time you need four products. I didn’t include scissors or a round stick/barrel because I figured you would use what you have. All we really have to have is paper (I recommend you use heavier card stock, at least 65 lb), 1″ paper punch, invisible tape and 26 gauge wire. You can use other gauges but 26 seems to be the sweet spot. I have 22 and 24, you don’t get as much Wiggle out of them.
Punch out 2 circles. This is going to be the top and bottom of your Wiggle.
After you have your circles punched out, take something that is about 1″- 1 1/2″ in diameter. Place one end of your wire flat against it and wrap around twice.
Cut the wire close. It should look like this.
See, it makes a nice little spring form.
Now take and tape one end of the wire to one circle. Believe it or not, the tape holds it quite well. I have never had a problem with the wire coming up. If you think of better method, use that. Use whatever it takes to make it work for you.
Proceed to tape the other end on your second circle. Here I have already glued it to the back of my bigger circle that I stamped and getting ready to fasten it to the card. I guess I didn’t take a picture of that step. Sorry, I hope it still makes sense. Once you have the spring glued to both discs, it can be used for any shape. Check out my sis’s birthday card.
Here it is going onto my example card. The Tooth Fairy seal of approval stamp from A Jillian Vance Design is about to get jiggy wit it.
I can hear Will Smith singing now! Na na na na na na na nana……getting jiggy wit it! Oooo, maybe Jiggies© would be a better name. hehehe Would you like to see it in action? Check out the video I made below and then get to making your own!
