  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Here are the items that I used in this guide.

    Step 2

    Select your paper and place the pinwheel Designer Template at the edge of the paper and trace with a pencil.

    Step 3

    Step 4

    Add a button or brad to the center for a fun look.

    Step 5

    If you would like your pinwheel to have a dimensional look, ink the opposite side of the paper and then using a tack pierce the top corner on the right of each section plus one in the middle.

    Step 6

    Step 7

    Then push the brad through the middle hole and open the prongs on the back to secure. You can also use hot glue and a button on top for the same look.
