Posts Tagged ‘make a spinning picture card’

Put a personal spin on a Father’s Day card: Add a photo that twirls on a string. Kids can pick their favorite snapshots of themselves and glue them back to back, or use only one and cover the other side with colorful paper. Then all that’s left to do is write a special message to Dad to tell him you love him! Quick, simple and a memory that will last forever!

Card How-To:

  1. Cut out a sheet of colorful paper with a width that’s divisible by three; ours is 12 inches (the height is 7). Use a ruler to divide width into three equal parts; fold paper at those points. Unfold. Fold left flap over middle (these panels will be card’s front), then fold both in half (use a bone folder, if you like). Draw a half circle (or half square) over outer fold as shown; cut out, cutting through all layers, just outside line.

 

  1. Trim cutouts. Lay one on photo; trace. Cut out photo; glue onto cutout.
  2. Glue string between photo and the other cutout (or another photo). Place string in fold of middle flap, positioning photo in hole; glue left flap to middle, trapping string inside. Trim string.

Decorate to suit Dad!
