Hello, and welcome!This one is a variation of the double-slider mechanism, which I spotted on Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel. When you pull the tab, Santa scoots away in the opposite direction.
Isn’t that fun?
I like to keep the workings hidden – the die from the In the Woods thinlets came in handy to cut a nice curved shape – but you could easily cut a shape by hand with a craft knife or scissors. The bit that makes the magic happen is a strip of plastic that runs between two slits in the backer card.
Here’s how I made the card –
I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I learned from the mistakes I made with the Skating Snowman card, so this one went together more easily.
OK, so that's my bit for today. Come back and see me again sometime soon!
