Add-on Week, Part 2

••••••••••••••••
Add-on Sketch #16

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.


"Smile" pinwheel display by Allison Davis
Supplies - Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Brads: My Mind's Eye; Buttons: My Mind's Eye; Banner stamp: My Mind's Eye; Alphabet stickers: My Mind's Eye; Memory Thread: DMC; Twine: My Mind's Eye; Butterfly punch: Martha Stewart; Other: oval bowl, paper shreds, wooden skewers, floral wire

I followed the sketch almost exactly to create a pinwheel decoration.


Variation #1 - I added some extra details with Memory Thread on the largest pinwheel.


I also added some hand stitching to a few of the pinwheels. I only added it on the pointed sides so you wouldn't see the backside of the stitching.

Variation #2 - I used a banner stamp and some twine to make a banner to hang between two of the pinwheels.

Hi Allison, Love your pinwheels! The varying sizes really look great for this purpose.

I just got through making a slew of pinwheels too for birthday party decorations. :)
