Nail Polish Bottle Rainbow Spinner tutorial by Jeni

NAIL-POLISH-RAINBOW-SPINNER-CARD-2

Hi, I want to re-create the nail polish spinner card I mentioned last week.  That card was made the same way as the gnome rainbow beard spinner.  This card needs a few alterations.   The brad needs to be in the middle of the circle to keep the ‘spin’ even. I need to find a way to attach the rainbow spinning element to the brad.

 

The Nail Polish Bottle card die by Honey Bee Stamps is beautiful and big. Watch the video tutorial below, or directly on YouTube.  Read on for a few tips on how to make this card yourself.  If you make a rainbow full circle spinner, please share it with us on our friendly Facebook group – Paper Tree Tribe.

Tips:

  • Die cut with black card. (Or use my method of smooshing white card with black ink).
  • Re-melt (carefully) the embossing powder on the curves of the bow.
  • Gently bend the curves as not to crack the embossing powder.
  • Use a strong adhesive to make up the ribbon bow.
  • Keep in mind your colour theory when colouring. Don’t make muddy colours by accident.

 

  • The spinner card holder (3x 4.5″) helps to hold the spinner element together while you make up the card.  (Easy to trim so it goes in the correct place without overhanging the slimline card panel).
  • Check the placement of the nail polish bottle die cuts with the circle dies. Make sure the circle is larger than the bottle opening but small enough to be hidden behind the card panel.
  • The scalloped circle adds a ‘grip’ handle to be able to spin.

 

  • Check (and double-check and triple-check) your spinner will spin in the right place. Behind the nail polish bottle die-cut without overhanging the slimline card base.
  • Foam adhesive between the spinner element and the front panel adds a bit more space for the spinner to spin more easily.

 

Phew! This is a card design that I will not make again for a while. Five layers of foam tape in total!  My next card tutorial will be more clean and simple.  Don’t forget to share your interactive cards and tag us on Instagram @shopthelittlepapertree so we can like and comment.
