Introduction: Mechanical Iris

I made this a while ago and I didnt post it till now. It opens and closes, and it is made of credit cards, paperclips, and foam core. It has six segments.
I am thinking of making an instructable of it.
What do you think?
Also, which image is better? The first or second?

    I already made the instructable, it is in the related section on the left.

    Cool, I'd love to see an Instructable on this.

    Just finished the instructable

    I prefer the behind view of it...

    Please do make an instructable about this - I've been wanting to make a mechanical iris for ages but haven't got round to it...

    Thanks!
    I am doing it right now
    If you do it make sure to post a comment with a picture!

    Will do, I just love the look of irises...

    Yes, I was quite adicted to them at the time, I was thinking of buying one but I thought that it would be a fun challenge to make one instead, also they cost alot too

    They do, we used them occasionally for lighting in film projects and god forbid you bent them...
