Coffee Cup Spinner Card

I LOVE making spinner cards. Some require a lot of detailed and difficult measurements and cuts. They can be worth it but I think the best ones are the simplest. This one requires almost no planning and no measuring!

All you have to do is cut or die cut 2 symmetrical images or shapes, sandwiching a thin cord or two strands of thread in between using strong adhesive. Next cut a window in the front of your patterned paper. Then layer your patterned paper on your cardstock and die cut the cardstock layer too. Use some temporary adhesive or washi tape to hold it together if you need to but don’t permanently adhere it together. Once the window is die cut, take apart the layers. Again using strong adhesive, lay the thread or cord on the cardstock as shown. Lastly, adhere the patterned paper down.

Now for the fun part! Before placing the card in the envelope, twist the image around about 6-8 times. Don’t over twist or your thread might pull from the adhesive and get a bit slack. I’m not usually into the little cutesy faces but the paper was adorable so I figured the coffee cup should match!

Enjoy, Rebecca
