Pinwheel w/ Spool — By: LeNae Gerig

Designer Tip: Use a cosmetic sponge to glue to the edges after the pinwheel is assembled and then sprinkle with glue. This way the folding will not rub off glitter.

  1. Trace two 4” Double Nova Pinwheel shapes onto the green side of the green/striped paper. Layer the pinwheels, green side facing up, and follow the template instructions for folding.
  2. Apply ink to the wood pieces and let dry. Thread the button with twine and tie a bow. Use the glue gun to glue the pinwheel back near the top of a 5 1/2” tall sharpened pencil.
  3. Wrap the spool with bakers twine, gluing the ends to secure. Glue the sharpened end of the pencil into the top of the spool.
  4. Apply glue to the edges of the pinwheel and then sprinkle with pink glitter. Tap off excess over scrap paper and return to the bottle.
  5. Tie a pink ribbon around the pencil into a bow.
  6. Tag: Trace the small tag shape onto the green patterned paper. Cut out and glue a 3/8” wide strip of striped paper to the bottom edge. Mat with aqua paper, leaving a 1/16” wide border. Write on the tag and glue the tag under the bow.
