Happy Day Pinwheels

Hi there, thanks for hanging out with me!  Have I told you how much I love you recently?  Lots. Like ice cream. Like my favourite sorbet.  Like pinwheels and summer breeze and sunshine. 

This card makes me think of endless summers.  I suddenly have a longing to go on a ferris wheel somewhere.  Yep, life’s good.

We’ve got more In Colours here – Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade, along with the new ruffled ribbon and printed brads.  They make me giddy.

Pinwheels are easy!  Cut a 2” square of Designer Series Paper.  Draw a line diagonally across from one corner to the other, then do it again to make an X.  Cut 2/3rds of the way in from each corner.  Now, bend in every second tip that you’ve created, glue in place, and add a brad or a button to make it look super cute.

If you attach them to the card with just the brad, they’ll even spin like real pinwheels!

Have a good one,

Shauna

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
