Happy Sunday! Yesterday was my cousin Andrea's baby shower. Do you think that I could allow us to have a boring treat table? So, I came up with this fun little centerpiece. Here's a close up:
Andrea is having a boy, so I decided to use Pool Party and Summer Starfruit... fun and still boyish.
Ok, I'm sure that you are ready for the tutorial now... so here goes:
To begin cut a square out of card stock. I chose to layer mine, to make it a little more interesting. I just cut the square a 1/4" shorter for the inner square. Then I drew an x on the paper lightly in pencil. Then I snipped until about a 1/2" before you hit the middle. Do this on all 4 lines.
Then you take one corner and pull it to the center. Repeat 4 times. Then you will use a paper piercing tool and then put a brad through the middle. Then voila, you have a cute pinwheel!
Stay tuned for next Saturday and you can see the finished table scape. Do you remember my easiest garland ever? Well, that plays a part in this table scape too. (I think that it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself)
