I made my first paper pinwheel (or paper rosette, or paper piece of folded perfection, or whatever you want to call it). It looks like this:
Her name is Betsy. Betsy wanted to peek outside my window. I’m planning on embellishing her with some scalloped-edged ephemera (of a vintage French text) and a button or two. And then maybe I’ll make some friends for her and string them all together and make a little friendship garland. Not sure. But this little DIY Pinwheel thingy from Style Me Pretty is what I used to guide me in Betsy’s creation. And, amazingly, it worked! I say “amazingly” not because I expected the lovely people at Style Me Pretty to lack effective explanation, but rather because I sometimes lack effective following-crafty-directions skills.
