Adding Motion with Levers & Heffy Friends Hop

Hey crafty friends, it’s time to celebrate the new release from Heffy Doodle! Today, I’m going to show you how to add motion to your cards with several different lever mechanisms. This is one of those things that is much easier to show in a video, rather than try to explain, so here is the video. I will warn you, it’s a little longer than usual, but I didn’t want to go so fast that the important parts get missed. Feel free to bookmark the page and come back for reference whenever you want. (You can also add the video to one of your YouTube playlists, if you have one for interactive cards, or new techniques you want to try.) 


As I mentioned in the video, this is part of the Friends of Heffy Doodle Hop celebrating the newest release. Your next stop in the hop is with Jenn Gross. The full lineup is below.
