To make the Spinner, use a pencil to lightly mark 3/4" from the center tip, 3/4" from right and left edge.

Prepare to have (2) Pennies: Adhere (1) dimensonal and position through the punched window, as shown. Remove back of dimensionals and place the end Penny on top. With a glue dot, adhere (1) of the candy corn on top.

Turn the top note over, adhere dimensions, as shown. Remove adhesive and attach to the front of the card.
To make the inside:
Adhere the (2) 1/2" strips 1/4" away from the top/bottom edge.
Cut into the 1-3/4" acetate in a circular motion. Adhere one of the candy corn to the bottom inside card, as shown.
