I'm excited to show you this week's card that I made for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge! It's called a Pinwheel card and it's a great way to use up little pieces of scrap paper that you have collecting. It looks complicated and time-consuming, but it's really very simple! Just follow the step-by-step tutorial below.
Step One:Begin by punching 8 squares of Designer Series Paper with the 1 1/4" Square Punch. Punch two coordinating patterns (4 of each). Using the 1 3/8" Square Punch, punch 8 square of coordinating Cardstock. Attach each DSP square to a Cardstock Square. (Note: to make this card even quicker, you can eliminate the step of attaching the DSP to the Cardstock squares and just create your Pinwheel using squares of DSP).
Step Five: When you attach the last (8th) square, insert it under the first square, as shown (this is why you only attach the corners of each square). Finish off the center with a small punched shape and a Brad, button or other embellishment.
And that's how you create a Pinwheel card! I told you it was fast and easy! I simply attached mine to a 4 x 5.25" piece of Designer Series Paper and mounted that on a layer of Cardstock and then the Card Base. I added a bow (5 layers) created with the 1/8" Organza ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration promotion and added three tiny square Rhinestone Brads. The sentiment is from the Stamp Set "Thank You Kindly".
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial on how to create a Pinwheel Card. I know you'll enjoy the other Stamping 411 Operator Projects as well so remember to check them out when you get a few moments.
