Pretty Pinwheel

Just a quick bloggarooney!!! I wanted to share this cute little project I made last night. My reason for making this is that I am teaching a paper craft class in the fall to our Co-op home school group and I am looking for 10 plus project ideas. I found this idea on http://procrastistamper.blogspot.com/2008/01/pinwheel-parade.html blog site and thought it was adorable. I did not have the Pinwheel kit that she used on the first one, but I used her straw idea. It worked out beautifully. However, I did figure out that it is much too difficult for the kids, so I did order the Pinwheel kits that she suggested. They were cheap enough and look way easier. So when those come in, I will just have to make another example. They are so fun to make. Also I wanted to add that I took the pinwheel pattern that she had and turned it into a cutting file so that I could cut them on my Cricut. That will make it way quicker to get these adorable little pinwheels cut for the kids. Thanks to http://www.craftedge.com/ and http://www.inkscape.org/ for making such awesome programs that work well with the Cricut. It sure could have not been done without them. Totally recommend!!!
