Off we go!

Don’t you just love pinwheels? I still like to place one in an outdoor planter every now and again to watch it spin in the breeze. They also make me think of the 4th of July, so I thought Tommy would be the perfect paper to make a fun, yet patriotic card.


The pinwheel is the star of the show! Placing some foam tape between the two pieces added a more realistic touch, and the striped paper straw adds another element of fun. Rather than using some sort of embellishment, I liked the look of the stars as anchors for the chevron ribbon. Here is the complete supply list. All products are Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:

Thanks everyone! I wasn't a huge fan of this paper when I first saw it, but using it for a patriotic theme works great!
