Folding Mechanical Card that looks like a Purse.  When opened a Butterfly (moth) pops out and flies across the room!  The butterfly (moth) is wound up by a rubber band attached on the back prior to being put in the card.  Great effect!  Card reads: "Happy Birthday ~ I'd never open up my purse for anyone but you!  But you can have the Whole Darn Bag - ",  then the inside reads: "And the moth that's in it, too!  Happy Birthday".
