Fortune Cookie View Master

I've been meaning to make one of these view master-type cardswith the fortune cookie from "Have a Cookie" for months! If you've never made a view master card, it's very simple:
For this card I cut a piece of Gina K Pure Luxury White 80 lb 3 1/8" square and a circle 3 inches in diameter. Poke a hole through both in the exact middle.

I stamped the fortune cookie in Memento ink on the square piece over the hole (since I had these cute heart brads I decided to let it show rather than try to hide it in my design), colored with Copics, stamped my greetings, and placed it on top of my Scor-mat to cut out the inside of the paper fortune with a hobby blade.

I put the circle behind it and put my brad through, then stamped each of my cookie "adjectives" (smart, cute, sweet, tough) into the "fortune spot", giving the wheel a small turn each time to add the next word. Slide a circle punch halfway in on one side between the two layers to cut out a notch to give your fingers room to turn the wheel and change the message.

Last I popped this up on dimensionals (one fits just right in each corner on the back of the square) to give the circle more room to spin freely. here you can see I changed it to "CUTE". I just got the scalloped corner punch, which I thought would be perfect for bringing out that pop or red from the brad, and back mat was cut from a scalloped square Nesties. Paper is Wild Cherry Pop Tone from Paper Temptress, SU! Basic Black, and base is Gina K Pure Luxury 120 lb.

I couldn't be more pleased with this how this came out!! Really gives it a nice "fortune teller" aspect, no? Since I still have lots of room left on the circle background beyond the 4 words included in the "Have a Cookie" set, I may just keep on turning and handwrite some more of my own, hee hee! have a great day! If you try a view master card, please let me know, I'd love to see your creation!

This is fun. I made one of these and cut the face of one of those Tilda's out and when you turned the wheel you'd get a different face. Mine all had mouths and noses though! LOL!
