Brad Litwin of Philadelphia creates miniature, hand-operated sculptures composed of paperboard that he calls MechaniCards. In addition to the paperboard, each card has wood, plastic, or metal elements that are integral to the movement.

MechaniCard - Mandala

Brad says he's always been fascinated by wheels, screws, and the relationships of moving parts... definitely evident in his well-engineered designs.

MechaniCard - Yike-a-cycle

MechaniCard Dragonfly

Brad's constructed models require little assembly, but for the diy enthusiast, each model is also available as a kit. You can see several of his sculptures in action...

If I had to pick a favorite, it's The Ambigulator (1:30 mark). With Valentine's Day still fresh in my mind, I'm thinking it would be a unique way to propose. :) By the way, Brad is also an avid musician and that's him providing the background music - quite a creative guy!
