The final product is a 4.5" x 6" card with a mechanical iris that opens to expose the star-crossed lovers themselves. But because there were other images that I wanted to display in the card, I made a little slot in the top so the images can be interchanged.
|The card with the shutter opened.|
|The Dresden heart is rotated to open the iris.|
|Here you can see how to slip other images behind the shutter.|
|"A partner neat makes life so sweet"|
A special thanks to ModMischief for sharing the Mechanical Iris Instructions on Instructables.
