The theme over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday is Spinning in Circles. Now, I realize the theme is to include circles, but I couldn't help making my circle into a spinner so my fly could literally spin in circles!
Ok, I started by importing that cute frog from DigiStamps4Joy into Cricut Design Space. The front is in 2 different layers as seen below.
I made my spinner out of circles cut from Craft Foam. I simply cut the circles, placed a piece of twine between them and glued them together with a glue gun. I adhered a little circle cut from the backing of glue dots to make the spinner really slick! Then I pierced into the middle with a piercing tool. I stuck a brad through the hole I had pierced into my spinner.
I then went to the top panel of the card and punched a hole where the spinner would go. I stuck the brad through that hole and opened the tines. Then I adhered the paper circle/fly to my spinner! Simply wrap the twine around the spinner and pull!
I got this idea from a video by Sandy Allnock who saw a video by Connie Stewart. Sandy had altered Connie's directions and then I altered Sandy's to fit what I had in my craft room!
So, here's my video of the little spinning fly!
