So, I finally got around to that spinner card I promised back at our last Pumpkin Club - how could we have such an awesome pinwheel kit and not make them spin on a card??
I also decided to play with my card shape on this one - and use my envelope punch board to make a custom envelope for it - not that I'll ever mail this beauty, lol... This is definitely destined to join my seasonal hall table decor!
Rather than go back over the basic directions for a spinner here, you can go to this link for a Christmas card class we did an age ago, that had a spinning ginger bread man, lol... But here are the extra notes for this card: My card base is 6" x 6", folded in half for a 3" x 6" finished base. For the pinwheel, I cut down the basic pinwheel shape by an inch on all sides, to make it small enough for a card. As it is, it still wants to hang over the card edge when it spins, but that's ok since you have to be holding it up to tilt it back and forth anyway, lol... After you adhere all your spinning apparatus, bend your pinwheel wings up slightly, so it has enough clearance to spin freely...
Make sure to get your last Pumpkin Celebrations in - I can't wait to see your creations!
