    Pinwheel Mania

    Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party 

    #178 Anything but a Card

    Optional Theme: Planner Pages

    My Design Team Project

    This was a really fun, and easy project to make!
    I used my We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel punch board and the YouTube tutorial HERE
    I have straws especially for my pinwheels, but instead I used some of Bonnie's neon straws. It was more fun for her to help me using her own straws.
    Pinwheels measure
    8", 7", 6", 5", 4", and 3"
    Gold brads were used to adhere them to the straws
    Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the straws for the brads
    Colorbok Signature double-sided papers, Garden Variety (love)

    Here's a close-up of the pinwheels...
