Spin Card-Another Fun Card


I made this card for my brother’s grandson, Dj, who will be celebrating his 1st birthday on May 24. Need I mention that he loves Sponge Bob? This card is actually a spin from the Swing card – but that’s not the reason why I call it the spin card (^_~). Unlike the swing card which simply flips back and forth, the spin card spins all the way around.  I used the same template for the swing card and I just cut the frame all the way through to make way for hanging the base holding Sponge Bob in order for it to spin all the way around. I used a clear nylon thread to hang the base holding Sponge Bob which is also holding Dj’s very cute photo on the other side. The nylon thread is neatly glued with a double sided tape in between the layers of the base holding Sponge Bob, attached to the base of the card, both top and bottom. I had so much fun using Margaret Wilburn’s ‘springy-thingy’ on Benjamin’s swing card and I can’t resist using it again on Dj’s card. I can hardly wait to hear his giggles once he sees Sponge Bob rocking and jiggling.
To add more fun on the card, just before putting the card in an envelope, turn the base holding Sponge Bob spinning it around in one direction several times, hold it down with Sponge Bob face side up and carefully put the card inside the envelope and seal. When the recipient opens the card, Sponge Bob will be automatically spinning around.

Here is a video tutorial where I got the idea of the spin card. The creator, ‘TheCoutureCrafter’ calls it the interactive spinner card : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGleyWgr6Lk




There is another card that’s also called a spinning or spinner card which is actually a slider card. It is very different from Dj’s spin card.

If you would like to have the '1 year', 'yeheeey', 'happy birthday' and the files from the swing card like the 'adorable' and 1st year', you can request for the files on your comment below. For those who missed the swing card templates, you can also request for the files. PLEASE do not forget to leave your e-mail address.
