Your recipient will love the “extra” in this cupcake spinner card!
Building the circuit requires a couple of extra cuts. You’ll find some basic guidelines for creating the circuit and needed cuts to complete your cupcake spinner card here. Eiko also has a link to a YouTube Video for additional details and specifics to make the spinner using the conductive thread.
Once the circuit is ready and the cupcake pieces added to the spinner, add the pull tab to the slider switch. Pull the tab to make sure the switch will still slide and complete the circuit.
Assemble the card.
Once you’ve completed the circuit and added your pull tab, assemble the layers: Card base > circuit > patterned paper card front. Use foam tape between the card front and the circuit layer. Open the card just enough and spin the cupcake to prepare it for the recipient. You’ll need a larger envelope to allow for the extra dimension of the card – and it may cost you a little more to mail.
This card can also be made without the light or circuit – using just the spinner. Just follow the directions in the video found here for the Reindeer Spinner Card and if you need additional help with assembling the cupcake, you’ll find those directions here.
We hope this card inspires you to create a Cupcake Spinner Card of your own for an upcoming special occasion or just because.

Mix up some fun patterned papers; cut, ink and assemble the cupcake for your upcoming celebration using the swirl top pieces and panels. Add the cherry from the Milkshake Box file to top the cupcake box.
Lift the lid…
and there’s a party inside! The platform in the bottom of the box consists of the panel from the Cupcake stand file. Jan scored the scalloped edge to fold down. She cut a slit in the center and placed this piece on a piece of cardstock scored and folded to create a rectangle open-sided box. Attach the elements directly through the slit of the panel to the rectangle below. Aren’t these fun additions?
The candle is from the Cupcake Center Panel Card and the flags for the banner are from the Vintage Camper file.
Take a peek at the files you have in your stash and it’s likely you’ll have some options for details you may not have considered previously. It’s always fun to play!

It’s not hard to find the perfect gifting solutions for Father’s Day (or any day, for that matter) with files from Simply Crafty SVGs. Jan has selected 3 files and added some additional details to make each one a little unique. The Tool Caddy, Tie Gift Box and the Dad Easel Card all work well with each other when you use a fun digital paper collection such as, Gentlemen Folk, from NitWit Collections. Let’s take a little closer look at how you can add that special touch.
Tool Caddy – add a coupon book using some print and cut images and add your coupon details on the back. Fill the caddy with a favorite treat and add a fun word strip to the front details of the caddy.
Tie Gift Box
The Tie Gift Box is the perfect size for a tie or some dress socks. Add a belly band, word strip AND a tie clip to finish it off.
Dad Easel Card
And the Dad Easel card is a fun and easy to cut file. Jan added an extra layer of lettering with no changes to sizes, just off-setting them slightly for that layered look. Add another word strip from the graphic file and you’ve got the perfect card for that someone special on Father’s Day.
It’s that season of the year. Graduation time! And what would be more fun than creating an explosion box with a little bit of an upgrade for your favorite grads! Jan used the Graduation Explosion Box SVG and added a few additions to it. Take a peek:
The upgrades? She changed the mortar board top into a shaker box, filled with all sorts of sprinkles and die cuts.
Jan then created an extra layer of flaps for some additional options (adding pictures and sentiments (not all shown) and then using the Gift Card holder that comes with the file, she used stamps and transparent inserts as a “pop-up” for the central focal point once the box lid is lifted off. Jan will have more info about the “upgrades” on her blog.
Play with school colors, add images from the year and a few other details that will make this a one-of-a-kind gift never to be forgotten for your special grad this year.

If you haven’t made this teapot, the Round Teapot is the perfect centerpiece of a fun tablescape to host a Spring themed tea party or Mother’s Day tea. Jan is sharing her version with us today. Then, be sure to add a couple of cute cups made using the Lots of Hearts Treat Cup.
The cup handles are from the round teapot file and are sized down to fit the cup. Be sure to add some saucers and several trays filled with goodies. You’re now ready to spend a lovely afternoon or evening with Mom and a few friends
The printed panels of the teapot and the cups are made using glossy photo paper. Jan wanted the teapot and cups to have a porcelain look. The top of the lid was also made using the photo paper. Add a bit of gold leaf or using a liner paint brush and paint a little gold on the panels for some additional highlights and trim. For more details, check out Jan’s blog.
…And since the teapot is a box, you can add some special goodies as a going home gift for your special guest.
Tea Party Treats?
The large and small trays are from the Serving Trays file. Jan found a printable miniature dollhouse wallpaper to use for the panels. The trays are a perfect addition to your first Spring Tea Party. Don’t forget your favorite teas or drink mix packets.
The larger tray can be filled with a few mini cupcakes, cake balls, bitesize cookies or other treats in your favorite Spring flavor.
