First, we need to make our card base.

1. Grab Your Patterned Cardstock

2. Fold 1 Sheet of Patterned Cardstock in Half (Design on Inside)

2. Apply adhesive to the first one

3. Stick down your elastic in the center

4. Apply adhesive to the second one

5. Stick it down on top of your other one making sure the elastic is centered

Step 6:

1. Flip your card over

2. Line up the elastic in the fold

3. Center your spinner in the circle

4. Place a couple layers of scotch tape holding the spinner in place

Step 7:

1. Grab your other piece of patterned cardstock

2. Fold in half with design on outside

Step 8:

1. Apply adhesive to the back of the card base

2. Stick down your other piece of patterned cardstock. Make sure you line up all edges and the fold

Step 9:

1. Apply adhesive to your white cardstock piece

2. Stick it to the center of the inside of your card

Step 10: Done!!!

You are finished!!! I think this card came out so cute and I loved making it! Before you put it in the envelope, spin your butterfly a few times. So cute!!!
