Today’s craft is a pretty pinwheel made out of scrapbooking paper.  They are both quick and easy to make.  I found this gem of a craft on http://www.dreamgreendiy.com/2013/06/05/a-diy-paper-pinwheel-tutorial/.  Now on to the fun! Here’s how to make the pinwheels:.

 Paper Pinwheels

Paper Pinwheels

This just involves cutting your scrapbooking paper in half and then folding all 4 pieces accordion style.

Once you have all 4 pieces folded staple or glue them together.

You then will take the small rod  and add it by squeezing out a big line of glue from your glue gun and down the middle section of the folds.

Flip the pinwheel over & put a small amount of glue in the middle of the pinwheel then place your button on the glue.  Be sure to press down so it will hold.

Hang up with a clear thumb tack or use a whole punch and use twine, yarn, or ribbon to hang.
