How-to make a Pinwheel

When I first learned how to make these I was shocked...and so excited.  They are SO easy and SO fun, and the perfect crafty touch to a million things.

Step1:  Start with any size of square paper.  Cut a diagonal line inward from the corners, leaving about an 1/2 inch space in the middle of the diagonal line (s).  Follow the pink lines.  The space you leave in the center really depends on how big your pinwheel is.
 Step 2:  Using a glue gun, glue in one corner to the center.
Step 3:  Glue in every other corner to the center with a small dab of hot glue.
 Step 4:  Repeat step 3 for the 3rd and 4th corners.
 And Voila!  You've made a pinwheel.  Finish by adding a button to the center (if you like).

 They are pretty cute huh?  I attached mine to little dowels, but you can hang them from fish string from the ceiling, or string a bunch by their corners to make a banner.  So fun!  Don't be surprised if we go crazy with these at Christmas time. 
Enjoy Xoxo
