For my layout this week I made a pinwheel out of paper.
All papers are from the Baby Girl paper stack by DCWV except the dark green gingham from EP little girl collection and the little white strips with words are from the Nursery Baby Girl matstack.

To make this pinwheel you start with a square of double sided paper. Mine was 2.5"x2.5"
Then you cut each corner towards the middle but not all the way through
then you take one side of each corner and pull it down to the middle
then fasten with a brad and your done! I then added a button and twine to mine for the Seriously Creative challenge and added twine for my stem.
Here is a template you can print/use if you need it:

I fussy cut these little ticket tags from the DCWV stack and added chipboard thickers for my title.

I also fussy cut little mushrooms from the background paper and added them to my page.

Come over to Lasting Memories and show us how you fold! :) You have until next saturday, and there is a goody bag full of scrappy yumminess up for grabs this week!

I used a previous sketch by Pagemaps for my layout:
