Swinging Spinning Card Tutorial - Quilled Flora

This Swinging card can also be called a spinning card as the quilled central circle can spin 360 degrees! I saw this type of swinging card at a commercial card selling site [cant remember which site] and was so fascinated that I tried to work out the mechanism of this interactive card.This is a friendship card for all my blogger friends who inspire ,support and encourage me constantly.
This is one side of the swinging card which spins on a wooden skewer on top of the card stand.
Swinging Card
I made the red flower and its leaves by looping paper strips by hand. I found that though not as perfect as the proper husking technique using pins on a board to form the loops its much faster and more fun!
Quilled Flowers
This is the closeup of the quilled flower bud again looped by hand.
Quilled Flower
The quilled rosebud is made by forming a tight coil and pushing its center out.
Quilled Flowers
The golden butterfly is also made by looping paper strips held in the hand.
Quilled Butterfly
The red flower is technically made by looping the paper strip around a comb[combing technique].I actually found making it by hand simpler and faster and not as perfect as in the proper combing! [ We have to compromise somewhere!]
Quilled Flowers
The other side of the swinging card also needs to be embellished as this swings 360 degrees and comes onto the other side.So while making it ,its nice to have images that look ok upside down too!
Spinning Card
The central Swinging card part is embellished with eccentric coil quilled flowers.
Quilled Flowers
These quilled flowers are eccentric coils.
Quilled Flowers
The eccentric coil flowers are made with paper strips having 2 color tones.
I reversed the direction of coiling to make the white in the center for the lower quilled flowers.
Quilled Flowers
This gorgeous embossed paper was a paper bag I cut up and recycled! The pearl leaves and pearl hearts are from a local fancy store.
Embossed Card
Materials Required to make a Swinging Spinning card
  • Thick Card stock- The base card which forms your stand for the spinner needs to be particularly strong as it is a stand for your card and has to support the weight of your wooden stick and spinner card.The spinner card also should not be thin as otherwise it will be floppy and unsightly.
  • Glue
  • Glue dots or any other adhesive of your choice to stick the skewer to the spinning card.
  • Wooden/plastic/ metallic stick to form the basis of your spinner card mechanism.- I used a wooden skewer. Use any long thin stick.
How to make a swinging spinning card
Fold your card stock in half. I have used an A4 sized card.
Cut out a shape  at the folded edge- you can cut out a semicircle,rectangle,half of an octagon etc.I cut out a semicircle marked with the help of a compass.
Spinning Card Tutorial
Use the shape you cut out and make it smaller by a centimeter or so.Here I made it smaller by a 1/2 a centimeter only and discovered  its better if you make it smaller slightly more so that it can swing and spin freely once attached to the card stand.
Spinning Card Tutorial

You need 2 similar sized  circles for the swinging part. Embellish the circles before you stick them .Use an adhesive of your choice to stick the skewer or stick to the center of your swinging card.Here I used glue drops to stick a wooden skewer. Apply glue and stick the 2 circles together.
Spinning Card Tutorial
Make the support for the swinging card:The support for the swinging stick with your card is 2 small folded card  strips with a gutter for the stick to swing.The width should be such that when stuck inside the card base it is hidden. I used a strip around 3 cm long and folded it. If the central groove of this folded strip is more deep the skewer will be at a lower position. Experiment a little before you glue it on place
Spinning Card Tutorial
Make a stand for the lower part of card base.Take 2 strips of strong card. I used a strip as long as height of by base card.Fold in half
Spinning Card Tutorial
Fold up each end as shown. These folded ends form the tabs where you will stick it to your base card

Spinning Card Tutorial
Stick this card strip to the bottom of your base card as shown


Spinning Card Tutorial
The photograph below shows the mechanism of the swinging card and how the card strips are stuck in position.
Spinning card Tutorial
Your swinging card mechanism is ready!Here is the swinging card in action viewed when it is spinning and has swung up!
Swinging Card Mechanism
I was crazily busy the last couple of days professionally with a couple of international patients requiring surgery and extra care. I was on a deadline to make a friendship card for the Guest DT post at Crafty JC [my Ocean Diorama Pop up card had become top 3  at Crafty JC] and perhaps due to exhaustion I just couldn't think creatively and struggled for ideas. The swinging card is technically easy to make but Oh Boy did I struggle for ideas to embellish it! Please do tell me what you think of it and do try the swinging card mechanism as its a fun interactive card.
Here is a even more simplified version of the spinner card tutorial using dies : Spinner card tutorial

    Beautiful, beautiful!!! You are so talented.
    I really love this whole card and the tutorial is great. Going to dig out the quilling material I have and try a flower or two.
    I only have a few colors but that is OK for a start. I love the idea of the card swinging.

    This is the second time I am trying to leave a comment on your gorgeous card. I love it. It is wonderful even though you were exhausted.
    I am going to try my hand at quilling. Someone gave me a small package of quilling paper but it is good enough to begin with.
    Love the simplicity of your tutorial; so easy to follow.

  52. Hallo Sonia,

    I have left a comment whilst using Internet Explorer and it was playing up so - I'm uncertain whether it actually registered on your site. Forgive me if this is therefore somewhat of a duplication.

    Firstly, I wanted to say - as usual your instructions are wonderfully detailed and easy to follow. I have never seen this type of card before.

    Secondly, Here in England now it is very rare to find any sort of a craft shop that sells lovely beads like you mentioned you were able to purchase. We have to find necklaces and cut them for the beads and decorations most of the time. I used to enjoy buying intricate and thin braiding and ribbons ... but sadly no more.

    I love the colours that you have used they compliment each other perfectly.

    Best wishes, Polly

  111. Hi Sonia,
    For the first time ever I have actually found quilling sets on sale over here in Britain. They also have numberous decorative items and some plain cards in several sizes.

    I wondered whether you consider doing the verses or 'happy birthday' etc by hand or is it best to use another method, do you think?

    I am getting a little inquisitive.

    My best wishes, Polly

  126. Hello Dr. Sonia S V,
    I am so glad that I participated in the Made it myself Monday challenge. I have bought a quilling kit but have not tried it. With your instructions I do believe I can now create something. It will take me lots of practice to make a card as beautiful as this one is. Thanks so much for sharing.

  141. Sonia - I learnt a new craft called quilling. I have heard about this. The tutorial made me sit up to think. How with paper you are able to create so many cards. Aded attraction is the embelishments. The charm generated is so soothing. So this art is definately a soothing factor.
