Valentine’s Day Tags with the Spinning Tool

The new year has started and next month is already Valentine’s Day. Therefore I played with the Spinning tool. To be a little bit prepared for this day, I created some tags. So first I chose the right papers, yarns and stickers.

With the Spinning tool you can do different things. Tassels, paper quilling and pom-poms.

First I created a few tassels with it. I connected the Spinning tool to the USB port on my computer. By spinning it you can create tassels very fast.

After that I tried Paper Quilling for the first time. I have seen many wonderful projects and was always totally fascinated. And so I first chose two very simple motifs. A circle and the heart. For a beginner these two motifs are easy to do with the spinning tool.

First I made a tag with hearts. I created a shaker pocket with the Fuse tool. For the hearts I cut 12 inch x ¼ inch paper strips and folded them in the middle. Then I rolled up each end with the Spinning Tool. For this the paper is clamped in the slit and then it is electrically rolled up to the fold.  In the photos you see it more exactly.

For the other tag I rolled up circles in different colours and sizes. For this I cut paper strips ¼ inch wide. The lengths are different.

First I made a tag and then I glued the circles on. For this I applied liquid glue on a paper and dipped the rolled circle into it with the tweezers.

The Spinning Tool is really fun. For my next project I will try some other forms of paper quilling.
