Blast from the Past...Paper Pinwheel Cuties

Hey guys... I wanted to share a "blast from the past" I made these last year, they were super easy and I loved how they turned out...

All right...I know the 4th is just a round the corner, but I got so excited when Wayward Girls Crafts did a step by step tutorial on how to make a pinwheel. I have seen these but never learned how to do it. When I saw how easy it was, I uh...just had to copy! I had some fun patriotic paper so my adventure began!

They have a GREAT Tutorial so click on their link above,and it will take you to it.

What you'll need though is:
-Scrapbook Paper or other colored paper
-Glue Gun
-Brads for the middle
-Wooden skewers
-Something to put them in!

After I made the pinwheels I cut strips of the star paper I used and just wrapped them around the skewers securing each end with a dab of hot glue.

I had washed and saved an old stew can thinking I could use it for something....yes...I hot glued the matching paper onto it, printed of the word FREEDOM and tore it out and glued it on! YAY!!!

 Here they are in all their cuteness!  It was a fast easy process. It took more time to arrange the pinwheels just how I wanted them then actually making them! Jeesh! I'm really liking how they turned out! So fun!

I KNOW I'll be making more of these cuties! They just have a way of bringing a smile to your face!

Go stop by and check out how to make'll be happy you did!
