monkey spinner card

I made this monkey spinner card for the muse challenge this week.


I cut the monkey from the new arrival cricut cartridge at 2.5in you will need 2

I cut the first piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it in half then I cut a 3 inch circle 2in from the left

then I cut a second piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and cut a 3 inch circle 2in from the left


I thin cut a piece of 5in green tread and glued it to the back of the monkey down his middle and added 2 copper brads for his eyes, then glued the second monkey to the back side to cover the string and back of the brads.

Then tape the sting to the top and bottom of your circle and glue the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch onto the inside013

I stamped the inside with vines from the wild wonders stamp set in ponderosa pine alternating between first and second generation stamping


I then I added flowers from the flower Shoppe cartridge 1 at 2in and one at 2.5 and the leaves and the tag from 3D objects on the artiste cartridge
