Spinner Card

Spinner Card Get Well

Spinner cards are so much fun!  They are perfect for children because their "spinning" action can be enjoyed for the life of the card.  I will be posting a video to my YouTube channel very soon on how to do a Spinner Card, but it's actually quite simple!  There are a few things you will need to create this awesome project.
Word Window Punch
2 pennies
Lots of Dimensionals
A "spinable" item - in this case I used the Pansy Punch
The cardstock, Designer Series Paper and stamp sets are all subjective and can be any of your choosing.  I took a piece of Gingham Garden DSP and snailed it to the front of a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Then taking my Word Window Punch I slid the punch in the whole way so you can feel it hit the back of the punch at the center of my cardstock (watch the video for detailed instructions)  Move the punch over to either side lining up the DSP with the edge of the punch to ensure an even punch.  Take one of your pennies and put a dimensional in the middle of it, then without removing the backing, put it through the punched whole so the dimensional is now exposed on the FRONT SIDE of your cardstock.  Remove the backing and place another penny on top of that dimensional.  Place a dimensional on top of that penny and place your Pansy Punch (or whatever you choose) on top of that dimensional.  Now SHAKE IT, SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!  Rattle it around back and forth to help round out that dimensional and help your Pansy spin.  Once you are happy with the way it's spinning you can then attach it to the card base using dimensionals again.  Be sure to double stack the dimensionals around the "spinner".   It's not necessary to double stack all the dimensionals around the outside though.  The video will be posted soon to give you a visual of how this cool card is created!
