Recently, two of my closest friends got married, and as my wedding gift to them, I created a card in which they jointly spray paint a heart (less than three) on a wall. There are two pull tabs- one for the groom, who spray-paints the less than sign, and one for the bride, who spray-paints the three.

My team at work held a competition in which we had three hours to decorate our offices for the holidays. I made a cam-operated robo Santa. I wanted to wrap some string around the axel and have it operate by a weight unrolling, but I ran out of time. More throw on the cam would have been nice, too. Still, not bad for three hours.
See below for a video of the mechanism in action.
When my good friends Kyle Payne and Scott Balieu got married (becoming the Radishes in the process), I made them a card featuring pop-up 3-dimensional wedding bells. The card was designed with 3d Studio, Tenkai (now Pepakura designer), and Illustrator. The bells have a bit of elastic to aid in the popping up, since they hang freely from the cross beam.
