Cut a shape for the middle of your card roughly 10cm wide, it can be any shape you like, I used a hexagon that I cut on the Cricut maker. I also cut my hooray sentiment onto gold glitter card and stuck it to the centre of the shape.

Take two strips of paper roughly 2cm x 15cm and cross them over the top, stick it down with tape.

Keep folding the paper back on itself until you have an accordion type shape that springs when you press it down.

Stick one side to the back of the hexagon and the other side to the centre of the card.

The topper will wobble when shook and look really effective, you can vary the design to suit a number of different occasions.
