Stampin' up!


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.

 Apply adhesive to one corner of the punched square and place as shown. The corner with glue should be on the outside.
