Pinwheel instructions

Here are the instructions for making a pinwheel. This is super easy!!!! Have fun creating. There is also a pinwheel on the Mother's Day cricut cartridge from last year.

4"x 4" piece of double sided card stock



Score the cardstock on the diagonal making an "x".

Cut the "x" leaving about 1/4" in the middle. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH

Apply adhesive to very center of paper.

Take one edge and fold to middle. Whichever direction you choose, keep it the same on each cut section. Apply adhesive to middle after each fold.

The center can be decorated as desired. I used a brad which re-enforced holding that middle section. I use my cricut dental pick to pierce a hole in the middle of the pin wheel so I can easily place the brad.

*** You can adjust the size of the card stock to whatever project you are doing. Just make sure you have a square. ***
Feel free to email with any questions.

Happy Crafting!!!!
