We spotted this fabulous ATC spinner on the blog of our very good friend Melani. Don't you just want to peek inside? That could be challenging since Melani lives in South Africa, but that doesn't stop us from wanting to see all the pages of her little masterpiece. We love all the things sticking out all over...it is so very gypsy!
Now, if you're reading this and saying, "what in the heck is a spinner?", we can answer that here... it's just like a mini book, but you spin instead of turning the pages. They can be large 4 x 6 size (so they fit pictures right from the developing counter)
or 2 1/2 x 3 5/8" where you may have to have smaller printed pictures.
The large photo carousel holds a lot of cards (we really mean A LOT... mucho, a gazillion). Pictures can be punched with the atc punch or fed into sleeves (easy).
The small ATC holder (artist trading card) can be used with sleeves for ATC's but can also be used many other ways. You can see some great ideas on our website here: ideas
A small spinner can hold up to 85 cards comfortably. Remember, you want to be able to open and see what you have created. The more 3-d type embellishments on the cards, the less cards it will hold.
Anyway, back to Melani's atc holder...When we saw this picture we got to thinking... what are people using their spinners for? Does it have a theme? Did you make it for yourself or for a friend or family member? What was your favorite product and what product were you wishing 7gypsies sold to complete your spinner?
If you send us a post about any of these questions we will put you into a random drawing for some 7gypsies product. For those of you that have finished a spinner (either ATC holder or 4 x 6 Carousel), email us a photo and we will post a few to our blog in the future, as well as put you in the drawing for the giveaway. The drawing will be on Friday, Oct. 3rd. We would love to see what you have created!
