“Water Pop” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: American Crafts; patterned paper: Bo Bunny; letter stickers: Creative Imaginations; die cuts: Bo Bunny; ink: Clearsnap; buttons and brad: My Mind’s Eye; chipboard: Little Yellow Bicycle; embroidery floss: DMC

Variation #1 - I made one pinwheel from a 4 inch square of patterned paper. I cut into the square with decorative scissors so the edges would be scalloped.

Variation #2 - I topped the pinwheel with two die cut flowers and a brad and added a chipboard border for the post.

“Pinwheel Present” by Megan Bickers
Supplies Used—Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (White); Inks: Ranger (Distress Inkpad: Tattered Rose), Tattered Angels (Glimmer Mist: Turquoise Blue); Embellishments: Bo Bunny (Brad: Olivia), Michaels (Ribbon: Textured Trios); Tools: Martha Stewart (Corner & Border Punch: Double Loop).

Variation #1: I varied the size of my squares, using a 3 ¼” and 5” size.

Variation #2: I punched the edges of the two squares before making them into the pinwheel shape.

Variation #3: Instead of adding a toothpick to them, I layered the pinwheels and added them to the top of a present.

Adorable layout Andrea!! I love that you made the pinwheel really big and the Alora line is so cute on your layout! Megan, what a fun way to use the pinwheel, and I love the pretty effect of punching the edges of the paper!

The download for this add-on is not showing up on the add-on page when I go there. I love everything that has been done with the pinwheel and just wondered if the download had some directions. I already have two different layouts in mind to use this on!
