One Last Summer Hoorah!

I know it is the first official day of Fall, but if you are like me, that doesn't mean you are finished scrapping the last of your summer pics. With Halloween knocking at our doors, the September kit was just what I needed to wrap up my Summer photos. My layout, "Live, Laugh, Love" was adorned with 2 sweet pinwheels, just perfect to make you smile. So this Tuesday's Technique is a breezy, bright, and fun pinwheel!

Step 1: Gather supplies...double-sided patterned paper, paper trimmer, pencil, scissors, and a brad.

Step 2: Cut your patterned paper in a perfect square. For this tutorial, I cut the square to 5 inches.

Step 3: Draw a big "X" across the square. With the cross in the center of the paper and the ends of the "X" in the corners.

Step 4: From each corner of your square, cut towards the center of the square. DO NOT cut to the center of the square. Stop cutting at about 1/2 an inch before you get to the center.

Step 5: Now...if you look at your square you should have 4 triangles. Punch a hole in left hand corner of each triangle and the center.

Step 6: Fold over each of the punched corners to the center securing with a brad.

There ya have it! And here is how I used 2 pinwheels on my layout...
