Pinwheel Centerpiece

Hey! It's Shawna with a new project today.  I know we have all seen pinwheels done with papers but if you haven't you're in luck today.  If you have then you get another peek with some really pretty papers from the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection.  I really love these!  It is really simple to create one. You just need a square paper in whatever size you like. You cut diagonal from the corners towards the center but leave the very middle uncut.

I also decided to do some mist droplets on the back of the larger ones because it is single sided
paper and i didn't want to have the stark white showing when folded over.  

When folding start with one of the corners and fold toward the middle and secure with a glue dot. I usually just start with the right hand side triangle, the top corner.   Do this with every other corner.  Here is the finished product.  I opted to glue my pinwheels to paper straws to put in this small vase. It's filled with
peppermints to help them stand.  Makes for a fun birthday centerpiece but you could use other themes as well.

Hope you have enjoyed my project. Please check out the following products from the shop.
