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".
