Sunshine spinner web 01

On a whim, I sketched out this idea I had for a penny spinner card, which involved rotating the slider channel upside down.  Whaaaaat…?  I know; I’m just weird that way… !!!  *chinkle*  Watch the Hyperlapse video to see the creative process from start to finish!

TIPS:

  • Make sure your foam mounting tape does not impede the movement of the penny-slider along the channel.
  • Double-layer your foam tape to provide enough clearance for the mechanism to spin/slide freely.
  • The 3D adhesive foam dot I used to make my penny spinner was from my stash and I had thrown the packaging away so I do not know the source.  But, it was 1/8″ thick, and approx. 1/4″ in diameter.
    • My spinner/slider cards tend to perform best with ROUND pop up dots, but these can be hard to find nowadays because manufacturers seem to be making only square ones… BUT…
    • You can actually DIY your own ROUND self adhesive pop up dots by applying Be Creative Tape to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam and then punching through it with a 1/4″ hole punch.
