My tutorial is on the construction of Circle Spinner Cards. Once I got started I ended up with lots of ideas for different ways to make these. (I even have a triple spinner card I will be sharing tomorrow so be sure to stop by again then!)
I show a variety of products that can be used for making spinner cards. You probably have some of these things already in your craft room; there are lots of possibilities!
First up are a couple of cards made with nesting circle dies or framelits. The key is to look for combinations of dies that give a 3/8" gap for the spinner to move freely but not jump out.
|This pinwheel looks great as a spinner!|
|A 3/4" circle wrapped with baker's twine makes a cute ball of yarn!|
|Have fun with different designer papers to create a scene!|
|You can use buttons instead of pennies for the spinner mechanism|
Punches can also work! Again just look for a 3/8" gap. A 1-3/4" and a 2-1/2" punch will do the job. I really like using punches for making these. It is quick and you can easily punch specific designs from the paper for cute accents.
|Choose constrasting designs and colors for the under layer to make it pop|
|A wash with a Wink of Stella Glitter Pen makes the butterfly shine!|
Here is the video! This one was quite an undertaking. All sorts of things kept happening during the video taping. I should have made a blooper vid---I think it would be as long as the actual video! Thank goodness for editing software!
