cut from heavy duty paper.
|To begin, place your template on your sheet of scrap book|
paper and trace all around.
Take your scissors and cut out your template.
|Here I am using the eyelet tool to punch a hole close to the|
tip of the pinwheel arm. you will need to do this on all four arms
and also in the center. Making sure to punch your holes in the
same area so that the holes all line up.
|Here is a picture where all of the holes have been punched|
in the pinwheel. Also pictured are the eyelet tool, the plastic
piece you put underneath your pinwheel while punching the
holes, and your eyelet.
|Here I have placed the eyelet through the hole in the arm,|
it doesn't matter which arm you start with, just continue
on around clock wise attaching all the arms to the same
|Here are all of the arms attached and then the eyelet is pushed |
through the center too. Place your eyelet tool underneath
the pinwheel. Use the hammer to affix the eyelet to the pinwheel
so it holds all the pieces to the center.
|And here is the finished pinwheel! I took this|
picture in my sewing room, because it was extremely
Windy here today, and would have blown this
paper pinwheel apart!
You can find the project sheet that I used to figure
out my pinwheels here

You can also use the instructions found here,
although I only used it as a guide, and altered
it to my liking.
