Default Springy cards

Talking about mechanical springs, not the season-- is there such a thing as teeny little springs that can be attached to cards to "animate" your flowers/people/what-have-you? Thanks- Suz

CTMH sells some that are smaller than the Action Wobble Springs. The CTMH ones are 3/4", I believe, which the others are more like 1 1/4", if I remember correctly. Or, you can make some of your own. I found 28 gauge wire to be nice and "boingy."

I make my own with light gauge wire. Make a coil and then pull the centre up a bit and you have your wobble spring.

Here is a great little video on Youtube about using the wobble springs, and also showing how to make your own:
