Bugaboo Tutuorial- Pinwheel

Welcome to my Bugaboo Pinwheel Tutorial!

Today I'm going to show you how to make a Pinwheel!
I learned how to make these at the Ippity booth at CHA.
Once you learn how to create a pinwheel, it is easy to change the sizes of it.

SUPPLIES: Designer Paper (double sided is best), Ruler, Pencil, Piercing Tool and Mat, Scissors, Brad.

STEP ONE: Mark your paper at the width and length of 1 1/4" x 1 1/4".

STEP TWO: Draw lines across your paper with the ruler to make a square.

STEP THREE: Cut square out.

STEP FOUR: Use your rule and draw an X on the back of your square.

STEP FIVE: Cut 1/4" up the lines you just drew. DO NOT cut all the way through to the middle of the X!

STEP SIX: Pierce a hole in the middle of the X.

STEP SEVEN: Pierce a hole on each one of the small triangles. DO NOT pierce it too close to the edge or your when you go to put your brad in, it will tear through the paper. Ask me how I know this information =) Make sure you pierce the tool all the way through the hole.
Now erase your pencil lines.

STEP EIGHT: Start folding each little triangle toward the middle. Put your brad into the small holes on each side of the triangles. Do this for each hole. Then put the brad through the middle hole. It may take some fiddling to get it into the middle hole.

Finished product! Isn't this a fun little embellishment to add to any card or scrapbook page?

Here is the finished card one more time.
