Holidays Kids Class – Fidget Spinner Card

It has been school holidays here in Western Australia – for the past 2 weeks.  And because we are in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s winter!

As Murphy’s Law would have it, these holidays have been mostly wet, cold & windy, so it seemed like the perfect time to launch my school holidays paper craft class.

I’ve been thinking through this for quite some time, but the holidays always seem to come & go before I can put my plans into action.

Not this holidays!  I shared Tuesday afternoon with 7 gorgeous little people.

We made 2 cards, a calendar/post-it creation & a necklace, finishing with free choice using pieces from my scrap basket.

The kids had lots of fun and it was labelled as the ‘best craft activity ever’.

All the projects were voted as winners, but the fidget spinner card definitely got a thumbs up from the whole group!

Because kids don’t have any concept of new, retired or otherwise, I used this class as a chance to go back to some of my favourites!

Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey & the gorgeous Moonlight DSP.

Here’s the spinner card in action…


Although I’ve seen some awesome spinners made from punches, we kept it simple and cut around a printed spinner image.

Thanks to Doodlecraft for the great template. (3″ is the approximate printed size)

We added 3/4″ circles at the three points and attached a washer with glue dots.

The middle feature is another 3/4″ circle with a 1/2″ circle adhered on top with a mini dimensional.

Again, retired was all ok for this card, so I used the arc die from the recently retired Sliding Star Framelits to make the spinner track.

The spinner is attached using more washers & a dimensional.

I’m calling my first ever kids class a wonderful success.

The kids had a great time and they were super clever at making things from paper!

Class Schedule – Feb, March & April 2017

Can you believe it’s February already???  I’m not sure where January went – we were too busy having fun to notice!

But, it’s back to reality now with school back in full swing and our routine most of the way to being under control.


You’ve been asking about classes for 2017 – here’s the details!

This year I am running 3 classes each month.

All classes will be held in my cozy little craft cottage

{well, the kitchen table in my house but we’ll pretend we’re in an awesome craft cottage!}

There are 2 types of classes…

  • FRIDAY BIRTHDAY CLASS – 9.30am
    • In this class you will make cards that are fun & creative
    • It’s perfect for all levels of card making and an awesome way to build up your birthday card supplies.
    • The cost for this class is $15 and it will take us about 2 hours.
  • TUESDAY SKILL BUILDER – 9.30am & 1pm (repeated session)
    • In this card you will learn techniques, folds & ways to use products
    • The class will usually contain 1 ‘fancy’ card or project and 2 standard cards
    • This class is perfect for crafters with an interest in card making as a hobby to build up your skills
    • The cost for this class is $20 and it will take us about 2.5 hours

Classes are limited to 4 participants per session – due to the size of the cottage!

If you see a class or 2 you’re interested in please email me to reserve your place & I’ll be in touch with payment details.  Your seat in the class is only confirmed when I receive payment.
