Hi, want to do a thaumatrope? It is really easy and i did it with pre teens.
You can see how it work here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWxa2eJ_Izw

1. Take a simple image, group with a circle or square and save.

2. Copy to paint (or other graphic software), erase part of the image and save. Repeat, erasing the other part. Save.

3. Make a line and align the images. Rotate one 180 graus (sorry, cant put the symbol)

4. Print, cut and use the line for guide to glue. Paint, make holes and put ribbon or string.

5. You`re done. Make more Smiley

You can incorporate it in yours cards and scrap pages. To see a gift I made wit it, go to http://gentedemassinha.blogspot.com/2011/09/como-fazer-um-taumatropio.html

Thank you and please excuse my bad english Smiley

Those are so much fun.  I don't know why you never seem to see these anymore. I had one from a cracker when I was little. It was a bird in a cage. I thought it was magic.

Sorry I should have said - it was a Christmas cracker - the kind that you pull apart with a friend and it goes bang and there is a little toy and a silly joke and a paper hat inside.   There is a tutorial for making them here but I am afraid I usually buy mine for Christmas because no one here sells the cracker snaps that go inside and create the bang when you pull them.  I think they may be more traditional in the UK than in the rest of the world.

Well, I'm glad I searched good ol' craftster for "thaumatrope" because I found your great topic!  Thanks for posting and sharing your knowledge.  I think I'll be making one of these as a Valentine for The ManFlesh.
