Pinwheels go round and round

pinwheels cards for birthday and baby

Here’s a fun little embellishment you can make yourself, a pinwheel!

Take 1 square piece of paper (I used a 2 x 2 inch square for mine). A double sided paper is best so if you don’t have a print you like, make your own. I used this polka dot background stamp from HeroArts and stamped both sides in two different colors.

supplies to make a pinwheel

1. Cut slits in all four corners of the square paper.

2. Fold part of each of the slits into the center to form the pinwheel look.

3. Overlap these triangle pieces if needed and hold together with a brad in the center.

Here’s your pinwheel!

Put on the front of cards for birthdays or kids themes like this ‘welcome baby’ design. It’s a cute card and a great way to use up scraps.
