As you can tell from my post, I have not been on for a while. Vacations and getting your kids ready for the first day of school will do that. So how can you still have fun with crafting on such a busy schedule. Buy items that are already partially done and make them look pretty.
I love interactive cards, but it take time to research how to make them and lots of trial and error. Close To My Heart came up with the perfect answer. A great circle spin card where the circle is attached by thread on the card and can move around in circles. All I have to do is add paper and stamp and I have a fun and cute card to give to someone special.
The card was made using an 11 X 2 inch strip of paper and some of the strong red tape. You can also use a glue gun for instant adhesive. Once you cut the strip simply accordian fold the whole strip back and forth in really small folds. Play around with a few strips to get the feel. then simply put the adhesive on one end of the strip and attach the other. Result will look like a cupcake holder. Put strong adhesive on the card circle and fold down the cupcake holder to have it lie flat. Add a pretty gem, brad, flower to the middle and you are done. Here is the finished look with Sarita.
