Pinwheel Card & Pinwheel Tutorial!

Pinwheels are all the rage right now. Do you remember making these as a kid? I do, especially in grade school. What a cute way to decorate a card and bring a smile to someone's face:

Start out with a 4" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper. I am using Flirtatious DSP. Using a pencil, draw 2 lines diagonally from corner to corner:

Using your Paper Snips, cut each line to about 1/2" from the center:

Pierce a small hole in each corner with your Paper Piercer and Mat Pack. Pierce another hole in the center:

Now grab one corner of your DSP and bring towards the center. Do this step for all 4 corners. Insert a brad through all 4 holes and your Pinwheel is complete!

Decorate your card as you like:
