Fun Spinner!!

I have a special birthday coming up and when I saw a similar card, I knew I had to CASE it right away! So here it is:

There are a few videos on You Tube that have a lot more construction, so you might want to check them out. Mine is VERY simple, which is always good.

 I traced around an actual toy for the spinner, but you can create your own or print off one from the internet. There are soooooo many in the image section. I actually had a piece of cardboard with foil backing from a cereal box toy, which worked great for the 1/2" circles, but silver cardstock would have worked just as well. Punch out four 3/4" circles from Pacific Point. Glue three of these on the outside arms of the spinner. Top with the silver circles. Center the holes you just created in the cardstock with the 1" circle punch to create four rings. Glue these rings on top of each other. Then top with a solid 1" circle. This piece will cover the brad in the center. Place it aside for now.

Punch a hole in the center of the spinner and insert a brad, making sure that the hole is large enough for the top to spin freely. Stamp around a Whisper White (3 3/4 x 3 3/4),(I used Painter's Pallet dots), mount this to Pacific Point (3 7/8 x 3 7/8), mounted to  Basic Black (4x4). Punch a hole in the center, which can be found by drawing an X from corner to corner and the center is at the intersection of the two lines. Do this on the back so it won't show. Attach the spinner with the brad. Use the punching tool to hold against the brad on each side and fold over the tongs. This will give it a bit of room so that the spinner will work. Try it and if it is working like you want, add dimensional to the back, placing a couple on both sides of the brad, making sure they aren't preventing the brad from moving. Add this to the Pacific Point base card.

Now glue the button you created earlier over the head of the brad. For a little more interest, especially when it is spun, punch out a 3/4" circle from scrap DSP and glue it on top of the button.

Place a strip of ribbon on to the bottom area and top with a piece of the silver metallic ribbon. The sentiment is from Sprinkles of Life, stamped on to Whisper White and cut out. Can you tell what it is attached to? I used the larger piece from the Bow Builder punch! Added the sentiment to that along with a couple of brads on the ends and attached this piece with dimensionals.

I hope it will be enjoyed as much as I enjoyed making it!
