You do not need glue but it helps, especially with the force of the gift card and the wooden spring mechanism. Pretty simple to put together, but let me know if you need more directions. A little wax or crayon on the pin and/or slide may help it slide easier.
This was cut using proof grade medium maple plywood all with normal settings.
Would love to see any improvements or other designs. Feel free to forward the love and share your designs as well!
Nice of you to share. That retention mechanism is clever!
You’re welcome. I’m sure there will be comments about the pin…
Thank you for sharing this. It’s brilliant!
Oooh! Thanks for sharing it!
Thank you for sharing this clever design.

I’m so intrigued by your mechanism! So thank you for sharing your design - I can inspect it closer…
Thank you! Really awesome for you to share with all of us!
That’s beyond clever – thanks for sharing!
You are all very welcome. Thank you for the compliments!
Hiya cut this out but I am a complete beginner - how do I put it together?
Looks lovely already - hugs x
The flowers go on the outside of the box. The little slider part gets sandwich in between the layers. The flowers snap into the slider. Hope that helps.
Thanks for sharing! Nice design!
It looks great. I did figure it out in the end but thank you sooooo much - hugs
