Pin Wheel Banner



I see pinwheels everywhere, but still haven't gotten sick of them. With summer approaching it seems like a cheery little touch to my decor.  I've placed these little twirlers sporadically through out my house, but after what seemed like a pinwheel making frenzy, I still had quite a few left over, so I'd made a small banner with them.  


To make things easy on my self, I stitched the corner of each with my sewing machine, similar to my polaroid banner.



If you still haven't joined in the pinwheel craze.  Here's a quick tutorial:



1. On a square of scrapbook paper cut from each corner toward the center (but not all the way).
2. lift the right side of each cut and bend it in toward the center.
3. Hot glue each bent corner to the center and add an embellishment (you can use anything from buttons and stickers to small paper circles).
