To be completely honest....

Pinwheels were always a challenge for me. I would look at them and feel quite confused at the way the blades laid. For some reason my brain just couldn't "go there".
I saw some of these browsing the net this week and I knew I wanted to figure out how to make them. They turned out to be very quick and easy to create. They can be created in less than 5 minutes. I think I'm going to making a lot of these in the near future!

Pinwheel Tutorial:
Punch 4 circle of the same size.

Cut each circle in half. You will have 8 halves.

Punch a smaller circle and cove with adhesive.
Lay 4 halves evenly on circle.

Take the remaining circles and layer them over the
bottom halves. (all halves go the same direction)

Have a super day! ~lori
