Happy Friday, Everyone! Hope you have enjoyed seeing all the projects this week featuring the Pinwheel collection. Inspired by Spring and the name of the collection, I'm finishing the week with this project using Pinwheels.
I wanted to layer pinwheels, so I after choosing my papers, I cut two squares (3" and 4").
To add a little more fun, I used a border punch and punched around all four sides. Using a bone folder, I folded point to point, opened it, then folded to the other point to point to form creases. This helps with the next step.
Cut to about a 1/4 to an 1/8 of an inch from the center along the creases.
Fold the left sides into the center. This to me is the trickiest part in getting all the points in the middle enough to attach them.
So to help secure them, I stapled in the center. If you are going to use a brad to finish them off, punch a hole in the center. Next, create the second pinwheel following these steps, then secure the two pinwheels together with a brad or staple again in the center.
Use can use a wooden stick, dowel, or, what I used, a lollipop stick and wrap some coordinating washi tape around it.
With your finished layered pinwheels, adhere it to the stick. I used a very strong glue to do this and held it for several seconds for it to bond.
Create your own "straw" to fill the jar by cutting strips of pattern paper.
Fill the jar with the strips and some goodies.
You may not have the Crop-A-Dile II that can punch anywhere. The pinwheel could probably stand up in the jar without because of the candy and straw it if you didn't have that tool.
I wrapped more washi tape around the outside of the lid, added a scalloped circle to the top and put the Pinwheel through it. It needed a tag, so I made a quick one by cutting about an inch and half by three and half piece of pattern paper, rounded the corners with a corner rounder, and then punched a hole at the top.
Very quick, fun, and easy way to put together something cute for my daughter and her best friend for Easter.
My daugther loves for me to make her something. So she will be excited, and I'm sure, will pick which one she likes best. Thank you for joining me today. Join us next week for a Spring and Easter projects.
