Whenever I see a pinwheel it makes me think of my childhood and also springtime. They're always so cute and colorful, how can you not be happy when you look at them? I learned how to make them and I'm going to teach you how. Below are the steps and a card I made using them. They're very easy to make.
Step 1 I chose 3 different colored 2 sided patterned papers. These are from Echo Park.
Step 2 Using spellbinders square scalloped dies I cut squares out of the papers. You can use any size you want depending on how large or small you want the pinwheel. I used the 1-3/4 inch square.
Step 3 Cut a one inch slit in all four corners as shown below.
Step 4 Fold each corner back toward the middle as shown.
Here are my 3 pinwheels after making the folds.
Step 5 Add a button or whatever embellishment you'd like to the center of each one, gluing down the center part under the button. I used glue dots.
Here is my finished card using the cute little pinwheels.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will make pinwheels for your springtime cards. Have FUN!
I hope you have a Fabulous Friday! TGIF!
