Fun With Pinwheels!


Vickie Y sharing with you today!  As a young girl I LOVED pinwheels!  The kind on a stick that when blown on or caught with the wind would whirl round and round....mesmerizing!  When I found the Elizabeth Crafts Designs Pinwheel die in the DRU online store I couldn't resist using it to create a fun pinwheel wreath!

I removed the inside ring from a 7 inch embroidery hoop to create the base for the wreath.  I wrapped the wood hoop using some twill ribbon from my stash.  Hint:  you could paint the hoop, wrap it using floral tape, or leave it natural!

Using double sided designer paper I die cut several pinwheels and used a small brad to fasten the blades to the center of each wheel.  I then adhered each pinwheel to the hoop leaving room on the right side to put the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die cut and a multi-loop bow.

I had a pinwheel left so I created a card to go along with the wreath.

Here are the dies used to create the wreath and card:




It appears that both dies are now out of stock.  Be sure to click on the waiting list box so you will be notified when the dies are back in stock.  Also, try doing a search in the online store for pinwheels and a search for flouishes and some alternative dies will show-up.

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
