As usual I started out with the pattern papers -- this time using several sheets from My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Girl collection. After Selecting coordinating card stock, ribbon, and ink, I set out to make the pinwheels. They were really easy! If you like this look I definitely recommend watching the video I have linked below. Of the two methods described I used the glue dot method.
In addition to these being so easy and fast to complete, I like that you can make these pinwheels any size you like. I made mine with card stock cut at 2" square.
After the pinwheels were assembled cutting the card stock, inking the edges, stamping images, and putting everything together went pretty quickly. I decided to make a gate-fold card and I stamped the inside with a cute bird image from the coordinating stamp set Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink. This card is so cute!
