Pinwheel Ornament

I love to make things with scrapbook paper... These are super easy and really cute.


First make a pattern - after several times of trial and error I came up with this shape:

Then just trace it on the back of printed paper and cut it out (I used a hole puncher to make the holes on the ends and in the middle) I cut out four shapes, 2 of each print:

Then place the middle hole on to a brad, making sure to alternate the prints.
Fold one side of the shape towards the middle and push the brad through the previously punched hole. Do this with all of the remaining sides making sure to alternate the prints just like before.
Just fold over the brad to secure it and ta da! a pinwheel ornament:

Cute! I am in love with scrapbook paper. It's kind of an addiction, I can't walk into Roberts without raiding their paper.

Those are darling. I love your beaded "peacock" bead ornaments.

I can see those made out of a sturdier material too, like wallpaper remnants.
