Snowflake Spinner - Tutorial

How it's made...

We start this by using a piece of A4 card stock and scoring it into 4 equal quarters as shown in picture 1 then cut away one of the quarters as shown in the 2nd picture.

Fold the card on the longest score line so that card is a tent shaped card.
On the side that is double thickness (2 layers) you need to cut out a circle making sure that you cut through both layers, I used a nestabilitie die.

When opened it should look like this.

I cut out 2 of each straight and scalloped edged circles the 2 scalloped circles are in a very pale pink card stock (you need to make the scalloped circles small enough to pass through the apertures you cut on the main card).
I stamped snowflake onto the plain circles and glued these on top of the scalloped ones.

I added double sided tape all over the back of the snowflake and stuck the 2nd snowflake on top of this by carefully aligning the scalloped edge.In the 2nd picture you can see the thread runs through the inside of the snowflakes (see arrows)

I used the snowflake embossing folder and wrapped this around the front of the card with the aperture cut out as this would not run through the cuttlebug I wrapped the back side of the card behind the folder as shown in the 2nd picture.

On the reverse of the cuttlebugged aperture I added 2 strips of double sided tape to adhere the silver thread to and hold the snowflake in place.

Add double sided tape over the silver thread and to the rest of the back of the aperture then fold over the other piece with the circle cut out and this will hide the silver thread making a neat finish

I added a sentiment to the bottom of the card some stickles for sparkle pearls to the snowflake center and knotted a ribbon around the top
& that's it your done!
