In our home summer means a more relaxed schedule, playing outside, boating, swimming, ice cream, flip flops, family time, blowing bubbles and pinwheels too!
Pinwheels are not only a throwback to my childhood but a hot trend in paper crafting right now. I like the fun whimsical feeling they bring to a layout. You can buy them pre-made but they are surprisingly easy to make. The pros to making your own is that you can make them in a variety of sizes in any color or pattern of your choice in less than a minute.
To begin, fold the square in half on the diagonal. Open it up and fold it in half on the other diagonal.
Here is how I used the pinwheels I made on a layout.
