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!

Hello Instagram!

People tell me that it’s all about Instagram these days!

So, I’ve finally reactivated my Instagram account.


I’ve also had fun tonight making a new teen birthday card with an Instagram theme.  My old one was way out of date!!!

Instagram Watercolour Birthday Card | Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

The happy birthday font in the Brirthday Bright stamp set is pretty close to the Instagram font!

How convenient – I love a good font!!!


I made the logo using our beautiful (quality) watercolour paper, an Aqua Painter and our fabulous inks.

The layering circle & square framelit dies made the design easy to put together.


It took me a while to get on board with Instagram, but I got there in the end!!!

I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram – what a visual delight of amazing photos from around the world!
