I will start by saying I am by no means a paper pinwheel expert! I know there are various ways to make them, but I'm going to show you the funky ones I made here:
Cut your patterned paper into 2 squares. The smaller of which should be half an inch smaller than the big one. Here they are cut 2.5 and 2 inches.
Cut from the outside corner to the middle of the square, stopping just short of the center. Do this on all four corners.
You should be able to fold it up like this:
Fold each section of each side into a triangle. Make sure all your triangles are going the same direction. This is what it will look like from the front:
I use some mini glue dots to fold the triangles together. Layer them and you have your pinwheel!!
You could leave them as is or put any number of things in the center. Here I chose some pretty brads.
If you have any questions PLEASE leave me a comment and a way to contact you and I will do my best to help! And if you do create some, link me up. I would love to see :)
And remember in my last post I mentioned Paxton took a nose dive...
