Cut any size square to make your own pinwheel. No punches or Big Shot needed!
I embossed the Daffodil Delight Cardstock with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and layered my pinwheel and sentiment on top. To make the pinwheel I started with a piece of Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper that I cut into a 3 x 3 square. I then punched a 1" circle in Real Red cardstock and placed it in the center of the square. Taking my paper snips I started to make a cut on each corner on the diagonal. To keep each fold in place I added some snail adhesive to my 1" circle. After all of the corners were folded in I punched a 3/4" circle and placed this on top of the pinwheel securing it with a Daffodil Delight brad. An extra piece of DSP was cut to make the small handle. For a larger pinwheel you just need to start with a bigger square.
