Tutorial – Pinwheel #3!
If you participated in the Virtual Card Party this weekend, you’ve already seen this tutorial on my blog, Hello From Kate. We wanted to repeat it today to catch the folks who weren’t able to follow along.
We’ve had two kinds of pinwheels in the past, but this one is the most like the toys on a stick we had when we were kids. Also, this is by far the easiest!
Put some adhesive on the tip of one corner and fold it forward to the center. You can also put a glue dot in the center of the pinwheel unless you’re going to use a brad (so you don’t have to try to put a hole through the glue dot which is not fun!).
This sample card is based on Sketch #8. If the pinwheel is going to be an accent on the card rather than the focal point, you can use a smaller square. The sample below is a pinwheel made from a 2″ square and is based on Sketch #61.
Everyone, remember, if you see a cool technique or if you have one you would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you can find archives of our previous tutorials at the Cardmaking Resources page of the OWH website, and lots of great information in the Cardmaking Glossary.
