Designer Tips:

  • The template works great with double-sided papers.
  • For the smaller pinwheels, I place a small Zot in the center to hold the ends of the pinwheel in place, then used a craft pick to poke a hole in the center and insert a brad.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. With the fold on the top, cover card with Kaleidoscope yellow floral paper. Glue 3 1/2"x6 1/2" of Kaleidoscope hot pink paper across the center.
  2. Using the Playful Pinwheels Template, make a 5" four-point pinwheel with Kaleidoscope green/stripe paper, a 2" four-point pinwheel from Kaleidoscope blue houndstooth/brown floral paper, and a 2" four-point pinwheel from Kaleidoscope green tile/yellow grid paper. Use the retractable pick to poke a hole in the pinwheel centers and insert a brown brad in the center of the large pinwheel and mini brads in the 2 smaller pinwheels. Use large Zots to attach the large pinwheel in the center of the card and the two smaller pinwheels on either side.
  3. Use Birthday Greeting to stamp "For Someone Special" on 1 5/8"x3/4" of Kaleidoscope yellow grid paper and round the 2 bottom corners with scissors. Mat on Kaleidoscope blue houndstooth paper with a 1/8" border and glue to the top center.
  4. Cut 1/8" wide strips from Kaleidoscope brown pattern paper and glue to the bottom of the 2 side pinwheels and a 1/4" for the bottom of the center pinwheel. Trim off excess from the bottom of the card.
  5. Inside: Glue 6 1/2"x2" of Kaleidoscope green tile paper across the bottom. Make a 2 3/4" pinwheel from Kaleidoscope blue houndstooth/brown floral paper and insert a brown mini brad in the center. Zot to card 3/4" from the top and 1/2" from the left. Glue a 1/8" wide strip of Kaleidoscope brown paper below the pinwheel as shown.
  6. Stamp Birthday Greetings "It's your day" on 2"x7/8" Kaleidoscope yellow grid paper and round the right 2 corners. Mat on Kaleidoscope hot pink paper, leaving a 1/16" border. Glue to the right of the pinwheel stick.

Such pretty cards and projects. This shows how you can make lovely things with just a few supplies - but a lot of imagination and creativity.
Thanks, Ann
