Laser cut metal wind spinners have been popular for years, and can be seen hanging in gardens, on front porches, and on patios.  However, these often have sharp edges and may be unsuitable to hang indoors (particularly with little children in the home).  Here we will make a wind spinner out of cardstock that not only won't have sharp metal edges, but offers the possibility of unlimited personalization.

I made this at TechShop www.techshop.ws

Step 1: Materials and Equipment

Vector drawing software (I used CorelDRAW)
Laser cutter (my TechShop has a Trotec Speedy 300)
8-1/2" x 11" Cardstock
String or yarn

This instructable assumes some basic familiarity with CorelDRAW and a laser cutter.
I have Silhouette Cameo. Can you provide a SVG version of your design?
