Spinner card

This is a fun, interactive card that anyone would love to receive. In this short tutorial, I hope to give you the basics on how to make one.
This is what the card looks like when finished. If you tilt it from side to side, the bumble bee will spin.

Step 1:
Prepare your base card. This is just like any other standard card you
would make. 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

Stop 2:
Create your "spinner"
For this particular card, I used the circle scallop punch and two circle punches layered on top of each other.

Step 3:
Next you will create the spinners "path".
To do this, you will use a 1/2 inch circle punch to punch two holes in your card stock. Make sure they are equal distance from top to bottom of card stock.
To insure that I was even, I drew a line with pencil through the center of my card stock

Step 4:
Using your cutter or a craft knife and ruler,
Cut from outside edge of circle to other circle at
the other end of the card stock. Do this on both sides of the circles. The center piece should fall away.

Step 5:
Place stampin' Dimensionals along the outside edges of the slide. Make sure to stay along the outside edge as much as possible so that you don't hinder the spinner.

Step 6:
Using a glue dot (or 3 or 4) adhere a penny to the back of the spinner piece. Add a stampin' dimensional to the penny

Step 7:
Place spinner against the slide with the penny on one side and the dimensional in the opening. Attach a second penny on other side of slider as shown. Think of it as a sandwich. Spinner, penny, dimensional, penny.

step 8:
Peel backing off dimensionals and attach slide to base card as shown.

Step 9:
