Hi there, welcome to another BSS Monday Idea.

Actually, this week there are two great ideas!
A Library Pocket card
And Action Wobble Springs

First, we will talk about the Action Wobble Springs

This is a picture of my card, and where the Action Wobble Spring is placed. I had to cut it down
to make it fit behind the bears head, but it worked perfectly.

This is a close up of the Action Wobble Spring.. It's a tiny vinyl spring. You attach one end to your project, and the other to the object that you want to Wobble. They have pull away strips to reveal adhesive, so really easy to apply. When you wiggle the card, you get a springy action, kinda like bobble head dolls. These are so much fun. Sharon has them on order at the request of several people that have been inquiring about them and should be in the store any day.

Here is a youtube demo of the Action Wobble Springs in action

Now, on to the Library Pocket Card.

. This is the outside of the card

The card recipe
Stamps - Bear, Penny Black
Teddy's Party (4079K)
Sentiment - Stampabilities (DR1113)
Happy Birthday - Endless Creations
Paper - Basic Gray - Olivia 6x6 paper stack
Rick Rack Trim - Punch - EK Success
Action Wobble Spring
Colored with Copic Markers
This is the inside tag with optional gift card holder.
Start with a piece of cardstock 7"x 91/2 "
Score at 2 1/2" and 7" on the 9 1/2 inch length
Score at 6 1/4 inch on the 7" length at the bottom
Cut away on the 6 1/4 inch score on both sides
Fold up the middle flap on score line and cut the corners like
the picture above.
On the top of the pocket, score the center section only 1 3/4 inches from the top.
Cut away from both sides and across the score line as shown above.
Fold score lines for sides inward. Apply adhesive to the outer flap edge to close flaps.
Fold up bottom flap, apply adhesive.
This completes the pocket.
Tag is 6 1/8 inches x 4 1/4 inches with clipped corners and punched hole for ribbon.
Optional gift card holder is 4 3/4 inches by 3 3/4 inches
Score at 1 1/4 inches on either end of the 3 3/4 inch length
Using a small circle punch, punch half a circle in the top of the center section. OR, cut out
a half circle shape. See picture above
Place strong adhesive along one edge of the 3 3/4 inch length and
in the center section on the back of the holder. Fold the unglued section inward, fold
the glued section inward to create the gift card holder. Adhere the gift card holder
onto the tag, centering it at the bottom.

Hope you have a great Monday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until later........

OK, I really love this idea , well both ideas, the wobbly one and the hidden inside gift card one. I can't wait to try it. Probably will not have a wobbly on it as I have no vinyl curly strips:) But the card itself, it's a go!! Love yours!!

Wobbly things + darling teddy bear can't get much cuter than that. This new little toy has lots of possibilities. I'm thinking a Valentine with wobbly heart popping out of his chest. Have a good week Sue.
