I have a really fun post and video tutorial on the Rinea blog today making this paper spinner. The bend in the foiled paper catches the wind and causes it to spin. I am a part of the Rinea Design Team and I post tutorials on their blog twice a month. [Wind Spinner]

How fun to make your own Christmas ornaments? Make this 3D box ornament with a free SVG file.
I love the look of a decorated Christmas Tree. This year, my youngest daughter asked if we could make a lot of homemade ornaments for the tree and string popcorn. This ornament has the look of a quilt. I wanted to design an ornament that you could see into the middle and have it look different. To achieve this look, you will use scrapbooking paper that is two sided.

Square stitch Glue Dots
Using your personal cutting machine, set all red lines to fold and black lines to cut. Cut two of this design to create an ornament. [SVG file]
Cut out two of the designed SVG file on your personal cutting machine using paper that is different on front and back.
Fold in all the triangle shapes on each piece. If you want you can use one Square per fold to hold the triangles down or leave them so they add an additional dimension.

Fold all the long folds.
Attach the one flap that will make the piece 3D.
Now join the two pieces together using the flaps and Glue Dots.
Cut a length of the twine, fold it in half and tie a knot. Place a Glue Dot on each side of the knot and hid it in the corner of the ornament.
