Spinning Pinwheel!

About a month ago, maybe even more, there was a card tutorial on my favorite site www.splitcoaststampers.com, that showed how to make a "Zoetrope" card.  I was intrigued, because I had never heard that word before so I had to check it out.  When I saw the spinning card I instantly thought it needed to be a pinwheel! Well, I finally got around to making one and after watching the tutorial it came together very easily.  And, it is super fun, anyone who receives it is sure to love it, my daughter has been playing with it for days. 
When you pull on the little tag, the pinwheel spins and spins!  So Fun!!  I used a 3D pinwheel, but I was reminded of a Stamp set that Stampin' Up! sells in the main catalog called "Sweets for the Sweet" that would be perfect for this card too, and less poofy. 
Those pinwheels would be great for this type of card, and so would the swirls.  You could make a twilight zone type of image with those swirls!  This is one stamp set I don't have!!  But, you better bet it will be on my last order before the end  of Sale-a-Bration on March 22! 

Here is a video of how it looks when it's spinning!  Fun right?

It gets kinda thick, so you might want to use one of those cute padded envelopes Stampin' Up! sells to mail it, add extra postage, or use it on an occasion when you can hand deliver it. 

Don't forget, ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT OF SALE-A-BRATION!  PROMOTION ENDS MARCH 22!  call me with any questions you may have!

Thanks for stopping by!!
