We’re about two weeks out from the 4th of July and if you haven’t started thinking about what you’re going to do — it’s time. Today, I have some cute patriotic pinwheels that will work as either decor or as a favor/treat. These were super easy to make using the June Paper Pumpkin kit as the designer paper was already prepped and the supplies were all together. But, if you don’t have the kit, you can create the pinwheels from scratch.
So this is a pinwheel that I would use as decor. The kit included 24 pre-cut pieces of double sided designer paper, striped straws and jumbo brads. These take just seconds to assemble. Imagine having handmade decorations in 30 minutes or less! And, they’ll look good in a flower arrangement, tucked into the landscape border, on the food table — well, pretty much anywhere. You can even bring a little 4th of July to the powder room.
Next, I changed it up a bit. I figured some of those pinwheels could be put to another use. So I used my favorite skinny bags (not the official name) and made patriotic treats.
Die cut banner tags are part of the kit. Here I used two of the stamps and the ink spot that were included in this month’s kit to decorate the tag. Then using the included Baker’s Twine and chubby paper clip, I attached the tag to my treat/favor.
Easy!! And sometimes easy is perfect….wonderful….exactly what the doctor ordered. Creativity is fun but…sometimes it needs to be fast.
Don’t miss out on another Paper Pumpkin! If you don’t want to commit to a month to month subscription, purchase one, three, six or twelve months to give it a try or give as a gift or use with your girlfriends or with your kids. And once you’ve made the project, you have stamps and an ink spot for other uses that take up hardly any space at all.
