Happy Friday!!! Are you as messed up with the days this week as I am? Boy! The holiday in the middle of the week totally screwed me up!!! I almost forgot to post my Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge project.
This week's sketch was totally fun!!!! There are so many ways to interpret it!!!
I chose to make a pinwheel card! It's on my papercrafting bucket list, and was it ever easy to make!
To make a pinwheel, you start with a square piece of designer series paper. My paper comes from the Summer Smooches dsp pack. For my pinwheel, the square is 3 3/4" on each side. Using my Simply Scored tool and the Diagonal Scoring Plate, I scored the paper from corner to corner (in other words, make score an "X" on your paper). On each of the score lines, snip to within 1/2" of the center point. Now, you need to poke holes to make the pinwheel. You need to be consistent here. If you're poking the left corner of one side, you MUST poke the left corner of every side. Also, poke a hole in the center (where the "X" meets). Now, take one of the corners with a hole and loop it over and thread a brad through it. Repeat with the other three corners with a hole and thread the brad through the center hole. Separate the brad on the back of the pinwheel.
Note: If you want the pinwheel to spin, you need to have the brad go through the stick too! Mine doesn't spin since it sits on a card! I just took a small strip of cardstock to simulate the stick!
This card is bright and fun!!!!! I just love how the Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit and Real Red play off of each other!!!!
Now, I am especially interested to see how the other Stamping 411 operators have used this sketch! I am guessing that we all did something very different!!!! Would you care to check it out with me? I hope so!!!!
