Halloween Knife Spinner Card

A Halloween Knife Spinner Card is perfect to send to those who love horror movies this month! When you open the card, the knife spins — scary!

Someone’s gonna get cut! Well, maybe just a paper cut, and those are terribly painful!

Recently, I created a spinner card using other cookware from the same stamp set, What’s Cookin’. If you want to see that one too, click here! Clearly, this stamp set is VERY versatile!

Conversely for this card, we’ll use the mirror-image technique for the knives! But if you want to skip that, you can by just die-cutting out a blank piece for the back of your stamped knife.

I hope you give it a try and create a fun halloween card!

See below for how to create this halloween knife spinner card:

How to make a Halloween Knife Spinner Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Pumpkin Pie
    • 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4” for your cardbase
    • Scraps for sentiments
  • Black Glitter Paper
    • 4” x 5 1/4”
  • Halloween DSP
    • 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
  • Basic White
    • Scraps for 2 knives

Stamp & Mirror-Image Technique:

  • Using black ink, stamp each sentiment on a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Then die-cut with the narrow stitched rectangles (I used the smallest and second smallest).
  • Again using black ink, stamp the knife onto a scrap of Basic White Cardstock, and then die-cut it out.
  • Easy MIRROR-IMAGE TECHNIQUE: With black ink, stamp the knife onto your silicone mat. Then, place a scrap of Basic White Cardstock over it and gently rub over your stamped image. Die-cut it out from the back. I find holding it up to the light to position the die works well.

TIP: To die-cut images without your paper moving, place a tiny piece of Washi tape over your die and paper before running it through your machine.

Create Spinner:

  • Adhere the DSP to the Black Glitter layer. Lay this on top of the card front and die-cut the medium stitched rectangle all three layers. This may require a few runs through your die-cutting machine.
  • Cut 6” of twine and adhere. Next, cover the back of one of your die-cut knives with glue and stick the twine down the center. Add a little more glue to the top of the twine and press the back of your other die-cut knife to the top.
  • Apply adhesive to your card base, center your knives within the hole and press the twine down tight to the top and bottom.
  • Adhere your DSP/Black Glitter layer on top of this, sandwiching the twine between. Lastly, add the sentiments!

TIP: Want a specific color of twine to coordinate? Use your matching markers to color it prior to adhering it down!
