Pulled Spinner Card Tutorial – Let’s Roll!


And now for a card that makes me go SQUEE! These little hedgehogs from Clearly Besotted are the cutest lil guys – and perfect for this technique that I adapted from Connie Stewart – her video is HERE as well as linked in a Card at the end of the video if you want to go see it. Cuteness!

Pulled Spinner Card Tutorial

Sometimes you see something on Pinterest that makes your lil heart spin – literally. I saw Connie’s bee flitting around and just knew I had to keep my eyes peeled for just the right stamp to try this! The hedgies were going to work so I ordered them as soon as I could find them in stock – they keep flying off shelves! And I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hills dies to give them somewhere to tumble. Connie uses Stampin Up products in the construction of her spinner, but I did some adapting with what I have – and it still worked! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

In the video the sandwiching of the spinner kinda flew by fast…here are the steps:

  1. Punch a hole in ONE power tab before removing one of the papers.
  2. Remove one paper, leave it facing UP, and put a brad through it. Use a brad with the smallest head on it but the longest tines you have.
  3. Place another power tab on top – with the peeled-back paper on the side facing down.
  4. Punch a hole in the card – a little bigger than you normally would so it will have room to spin around easily.
  5. Add the brad through the hole, peel off the top paper, and stick the spinner image on top!

This means you’re sandwiching the head of  a brad between the two power tabs, then sticking the image on top of that. Hope that makes sense if the video wasn’t clear!

Make something to pull the tab with – I cut out little hearts, sandwiching them and the twine with a power tab in the middle.

Supplies & a Question

Below are links to the supplies I’ve used for today’s project; click on the picture or wording to go directly to the item. Affiliate links may used, which means if you make a purchase I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I truly appreciate your support toward the costs of running this blog! Read more.

Question: I would like your opinion on something…normally I use the little grid with photos. But my web people tell me my blog would be ranked better with Google if I don’t use that, due to how they’re coded. Do you prefer to see the little pictures, or is a nice list like this just as good? Thanks for your input!

  1. I really love this spinner! I’m actually trying to make it right now 🙂 I even have the same stamps, so nice to have something to do with it thats different! And so very well suiting for that little rolled up hedgie <3
    I did notice in your written tutorial on the blog here, you didn't say where the twine went 😉 That was a little confusing, haha! But I checked the video again and I know where it goes now.

  2. May be too late to weigh in on this question, but I’m definitely in favor of the list version. The reason being that I love your cards so much I have to have the instructions down the line and the ability to find the products when I’m ready to tackle it. Having the pictures is a bummer when it comes to cutting and pasting into a Word document – can certainly be done but takes a lot of time to get rid of all the formatting – and if you don’t it takes up a lot of unnecessary space. I like a trimmed down document. =^..^=

    1. Forgot to mention that I (of course!) totally love the little interactive hegie card!!

  3. Mayby you could try pieces of vine cork for you spinnercard? Just a cut off…

    1. Cork might not be slippery enough?

  4. Cute card. Love how the hedgehog spins. TFS

  5. I finally had some time to catch up on your last couple videos and this is so stinkin’ cute! Love the idea of a spinning hedgehog! 🙂

  6. Do both! Present the list up with the project notes and put the picture grid at the bottom. Win win!

    1. Unfortunately the picture grid is the lose lose part 🙁

  7. Sandy, this is such a cute and fun card. I have to try this. Saw the video you recommended about the 6×6 paper pads. Wow! So much ideas. I have a lot of paper pads. I buy them because I love the patterns and colors but then barely use them. Got a lot of ideas from that video. Thanks so much for sharing. You never disapoint. Have a nice week.

  8. Cutest card ever!! Thanks for the details! I really like the grid w/pictures but if you’ll get more traffic I’d go w/the list. You’re quite gracious to always share the products you use which is truly appreciated.

  9. Either way-usually I don’t need to see a pic of the item because I see it in the video anyway. Cute lil hedgehog spinner. Love the softness and colors of this one:)

  10. Sometimes all the thumbnails can seem like clutter. I really appreciate knowing the names of the products and a reputable source to buy them, so the linked product list works well for me. Adorable hedgehogs!

  11. How cute is that hedgie?!! As for the list vs the thumbnail…I like the thumbnail, but if a list will get you higher on Google go for that. After all we want as many people as possible to know how awesome you are and to benefit from all your great tutorials!

  12. Just the list is fine.Great card!

  13. Cute, cute card. The little hedgehugs are adorable. About the supplies I’m very visual so I prefer the little photos but I can live with whatever is convenient for you.

  14. The list works good for me Sandy. Such a cute little card. Love watching your videos.

  15. Hello I recreated this spinner pull card from the clearly besotted butterfly wishes stamp and die set. ( I love your version!) check my version out at I didn’t know how else to link it.

  16. LoVe, love, love the spinning Hedgie …

  17. Amazing!!

  18. Cute card Sandy! You leave us such a diversity of card and coloring lessons. Love you for this! Thanks so much. In answer to your question. . . no grid, just the list is my preference. Blessings

  19. Sandy, you have done it again. Love this spinner card. Appears to be easier to make than the one that uses a penny or dime. Cute little images as well. Nice design…TFS

    1. It was actually way harder for me! lol

  20. I’ve sent several emails regarding my inability to get into one of your on-line classes. I have paid but can’t get in and haven’t heard back so assume the email link is incorrect. Where can I send you my questions about this problem?

    1. I’m so sorry – I’ve replied to your emails and you haven’t gotten those?

  21. I like the grid with pictures!

  22. Do what it takes for you to get a better rating by all means…BUT, getting a little glimpse of each posting is intriguing and peaks curiosity

  23. So fun and super adorable. List is fine, but do what makes you happy and less stressed.

  24. In your video, you mentioned the stamping/papercrafting store in Savage, MD– I live very close by to there! Do you travel here often? I would LOVE to take a class if you teach one there!!

    1. P.S. I just found your classes page on your site– I will keep my eyes open for the next time you teach at Queen’s Ink!

  25. This is ingenious , your such a creative rock star!

  26. I love me some hedgehogs! I also like the list feature, but I can live with the other approach as well. I say go with whichever one causes less work/stress for you and gives you more time to continue your creative journey.

  27. This card is just adorable!! Thank you for doing this video. I am going to have to try this technique. Those little hedgies are adorable!!

  28. The list is just fine for me. I generally click on the link if it’s something I want to see up close or order, and it’s just as easy to do from the list.

  29. Fun card! My grandkids love cards with motion so I am always on the look out for new ideas.

    I don’t think it matters at all for the format for the supply list. It is just nice to know what products you used

  30. Love this card! I think the supplies list is just fine if it would rank your blog higher. We don’t need pictures since we saw everything in the video already.

  31. The list is fine by me also. I agree with the others, makes for a cleaner look. Cute card and lots of possibilities.

  32. This spinner card is adorable. I definitely want to give this technique a try. As for the grid vs. list view of items used, I personally think the list view is fine. It’s cleaner on the page and a simple click of the link takes me to a photo image easily enough.

  33. I love this spinner card and I have tons of animal stamps that I could use. I just watched Kristi’s entire 6X6 paper pad video and it was awesome. I love paper and I have tons of these pads and hate to have scraps left over. I couldn’t find her on YT to look at her videos individually to get a better idea of how she determines the sizes of paper to cut.

  34. Completely adorable! Now I have a challenge for you. mwahahaha Combine your penny slider, with your spinner! O.O So, your little hedgehog can slide down the hill, and roll at the same time!!! Ok, I don’t even know if that’s possible, but how cute would that be?! I do know, if anyone can do it, it’s probably you.. hehe Thanks for sharing, and for sharing your friends videos.

    1. He would twirl if he was a slider – cute idea!

  35. Every time I watch a coloring video I learn something….today it was about using the 0 marker first so that it is easier to keep those white spaces and the other colors will blend better.

    List or pictures? Love the pictures but do whatever it takes to get the better rating (seems weird that one version would rank better than another.) The list looks cleaner I guess, but sometimes knowing exactly what something looks like helps if you are going to look for it someplace other than using the link to purchase. 🙂
    Thank you!

    1. The thing Google doesn’t like is scripts – that’s what makes the little pictures show up. My blog pulls the picture from another site and that requires all kinds of crazy code. I wish that didn’t matter to silly Google!

  36. Adorable. Love the hedgies and the pulled spinner technique. Thanks for sharing this video wit us.

  37. What an adorable card, Sandy! It’s such fun to see the cute little hedgie in action! A list of supply links is fine with me. Please do what works best for you,Sandy! Thanks for ALL that you do! ♡

  38. I prefer the little grid with pictures.

  39. I wish I could give this one multiple likes. I can’t wait to try it out myself. As for your question, if given a choice, I prefer seeing the little pictures over the list, but you need to do what is best for you.

  40. I like the pictures instead of the words but then I’m a visual learner. I’ll keep reading your blog however you format it. I love all of your tutorials and your humor although the Copics still intimidate me. 🙂

  41. The list is fine. I’d say use whichever gets you a higher Google rating. Because, well…. your rating is already tops with your blog readers!

  42. This technique is so cool. Thanks for the clear directions.

    I prefer the tiny photos. Easier for me to locate.

  43. I like the list. Thanks for your great videos Sandy!
