So, this was my April project for one of my absolute favorite online places Crop Chocolate. (Sorry I'm late posting it here.) I made an Easter card using Echo Park's Springtime Collection (one of my new favorite brands). It was my very first attempt at pinwheels and I love how it turned out. I made it for my mom (since I already gave it to her, I can tell you that), and she loved it! I hope you enjoy it, too!
Form a 5 ½ x 4 ¼-inch top-folded card from bright pink cardstock. Cut a 5 ¼ x 4-inch piece of Growing Vines paper and adhere to card front. Using scalloped scissors, cut one 2-inch square each from Delightful Stripe, Floral Fun, and Colored Dots papers. Ink edges brown.
To create a pinwheel, cut a 1-inch slit from each corner of a scalloped square toward center and fold corners to center; secure with adhesive. Thread buttons with floss, tie knots on back, and trim ends. Attach a button to the center of each pinwheel with a glue dot. Adhere pinwheels to card front as shown.
Cut out journaling card from paper, add a sentiment or sticker, and adhere to upper left corner of card front. (I cut a small rectangle from white cardstock, stamped a sentiment, and punched the corners to mimic the design in the journaling card.)
