Trendy Summer Pinwheels

Featured Stamp Sets: Lean on Me, Tiny Tags

Pinwheels are such a symbol of summer. I was inspired by the June 2012 issue of Stampin' Success magazine, which is a publication exclusively for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Stampin' Up! gives us the cutest and craftiest ideas to share and demonstrate. These are the projects that we'll make at June's Stamp Club.
The double pinwheel at the top is made from a 5" square of Whisper White Card Stock and a 4" square of retired DSP. The mini pinwheel on the card is a 2" square. The pinwheel below is a 6" square of DSP attached to a wooden skewer with a glue dot. 
Here are a couple of easy to follow videos I found on You Tube to help you get a visual of creating a pinwheel:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rfv_9XNNIis and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID-iSgnLcZo&feature=fvwrel  I filled the Cellophane tube with Tic Tacs. One small rectangle filled the entire cello tube.

  1. I love making pinwheels and I think the simple ones are the best!

  2. I loved all those pinwheels, too! Great idea to put it on top of a treat bag!
