Today I'm going to show you how to make pinwheels. I know some of you have made them before but maybe its been a while. For those of you that haven't, they are super easy and I love the dimension they add to your page.

1. Cut out a double sided sheet into a square. (I made mine about 3 inches.)

2. Draw out a criss-cross on the back of the patterned paper with a pencil. I used a Sharpie just so you could see it. Cut along the lines about halfway to the center, not all the way.

3. Fold each dotted corner into the center of the square and adhere.

4. Add a large brad or button to the center and you're done! Pretty easy, right? They make me look forward to Spring.

Supplies: American Crafts "Letterbox" collection found in the Stash gallery.

Have a happy Tuesday!
