Celebrate with Pinwheels

Here is another Pinwheel Card What words would you put on this card?  Maybe a birthday or party invitation.  Thank-you for a gift.  Or a thinking of you, because you make me happy card. I can see using these on gift packaging too. Wouldn't they look cute on a belly band or cup coozee?  Or how about a fun pencil topper? And did you see Saturday's post? Its a baby card with pastel pinwheels.  Leave a comment below to tell me where you'd use a little pinwheel.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Pinwheel Sizzlet Die Stampin'UP!'s Pinwheel Sizzlet Die

I really am having so much fun with this new sizzlet die. Its one of the little flat dies . . . and I mean little! You cut your paper at just 2.25" square. What a great way to use up scraps of designer paper.  If you're like me you have tons of scraps laying around.  Well, here's a cute way to use up some of them!

The die does 2 things: it cuts the shape you need AND cuts the holes for the brad you'll use to hold it together. Of course you could just glue the ends to the center too.  In the card photo above you can see that for this project I added a tiny, sparkly punched flower under the brad.

HINT: I've found the easiest way (for me) to line up the points is to mount them all on my paper piercer.  I start from the bottom and then just bring each corner up and add it to the stack.  Depending on what the finished project is, you can leave the flaps curved or press them flat to fit in an envelope.

Do you have a Big Shot (or other die cut machine)? Would this cute little pinwheel die make a nice addition to your collection of dies and embossing folders? Its item # 129411, and its only $4.95!
