SWEET SPINNER CARD FOR YOUR VALENTINE!

THIS IS FUN TO MAKE, and I want to share it with YOU! I think I would love to get one of these!  The heart in the middle spins, and it's sooo pretty!  I got the idea for this from Dawn Griffith who made one for a different occasion. Wind the heart around about 10 times, close the card, and when it's opened the heart spins! Here's the picture of mine, and the directions and video are included!  Enjoy!
