I love the look of Pinwheel cards and I have received a lot of beautiful samples in swaps. So I decided it was time to make my own. Once I took a good look at how a Pinwheel card is made, I realized it was simpler than I thought.
You need 2 squares of cardstock or paper 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" and 8 squares of cardstock or paper 1-1/4" x 1-1/4". These squares can be cut out or punched with the 1-1/4" sqaure punch. Here I used two different paper patterns for the smaller squares.
Follow the instructions below to make the pinwheel and then add a center embellishment to the pinwheel to make it look finished. You can use a brad, button, eyelet or even cardstock to make the center.
Try it and see how quickly you will be making your own Pinwheel cards.
Cut two squares of cardstock 2-5/8” x 2-5/8” and overlap the squares diagonally.
Apply adhesive to one corner of the punched square and place as shown. The corner with glue should be on the outside.
Using a contrasting pattern, adhere the next piece of paper.
Continue until only one square remains.
Tuck the final square behind the first square to finish.
