Pinwheel card tutorial

1. What do you need?
2 pieces of cardstock 2 5/8 x 2 5/8 inch (or 7x7 cm)
4 pieces of cardstock 1 ¼ x 1 ¼ inch ( or 3 x 3 cm) color A
4 pieces of cardstock 1 ¼ x 1 ¼ inch ( or 3 x 3 cm) color B
a rubber stamp and ink of your choice
a big brad to add in the middle
2. Glue the two big pieces of cardstock like you see in the picture together.
Now take 4 pieces of the same color and stamp them with a pattern. I used Mike’s circle stamp.
You can also stamp the other color with the same stamp, with another stamp or leave it blank.

3. Use a little glue ONLY on the top of the square and glue this to the big squares. Change color all the time. Only for the last square you need to lift the first square and tug the square half way under it. You see what I mean when you get there.

4. To finish the wheel, you take a sharp item and a cushion to prick a whole in the middle.

Add a big brad to it and you pinwheel is ready to be mounted on your card.


Hope you enjoyed the lesson.

I like this very much Hetty, thanks for 'digging' it out of your archives - I have never seen it before so it proves that it's worth bringing ideas back as there's always someone who'll find it 'new'.
