How to make a pinwheel card

Hi everyone! In my last blog post I shared a pinwheel card with you as part of our docrafts project design team ‘interactive cards’ blog hop, and this time I wanted to show you how to make a pinwheel card, so I’ve put together a little video tutorial!

In the video I show you a quick and simple way of making a pinwheel or windmill card, like the kind you’d find spinning in the wind on the beach. Double sided papers work best for this as the pinwheel shows off both sides of the design. I’ve used Papermania Folk Floral papers which have a vintage, kitsch feel to them.

First you need to cut a square, and then snip into the square on each of the diagonals, but not right into the centre. You then fold four sections in towards the centre, pierce holes, and secure with a brad. To attach to a card you make a hole in the card blank first and then secure the back of the brad through the card once the pinwheel is assembled.

To complete my card I’ve doodled a border round the outside of the card with a black Artiste brush marker and added a tag and sentiment with a few doodled stars above it.
