Spinning Greeting Cards- Father’s Day DIY Greeting Card Tutorial

Rate this post

Make this Father’s Day special by letting your kids making their own spinning card as a present. Add a cute selfie photo that twirls on a string. Your kids can pick their favorite snapshots of themselves and glue them back to back, or decorate both sides however they like. Then all that’s left to do is write a special message to their loving Daddy.



  • Bone folder
  • Colorful paper
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Glue
  • Photo
  • String


  1. Cut out a sheet of colorful paper with a width that’s divisible by three; ours is 12 inches (the height is 7). Use a ruler to divide width into three equal parts; fold the paper at those points. Unfold. Fold left flap over the middle (these panels will be card’s front), then fold both in half (use a bone folder, if you like). Draw a half circle (or half square) over outer fold; cut out, cutting through all layers, just outside the line.

  2. Trim cutouts. Lay one on the photo; trace. Cut out photo; glue onto cutout.

  3. Glue string between photo and the other cutout (or another photo). Place string in the fold of middle flap, positioning photo in the hole; glue left flap to the middle, trapping string inside. Trim string.
