I very much enjoyed the Tucked Pinwheel card I made a few weeks ago. So I recreated it for a class. These folds are addictive in case you have not tried it yet. Today’s card stars a few different products but especially the Fresh As A Daisy DSP.
Here is the open view of the pinwheel.
The Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper is really the star of this card in addition to the pinwheel. Seeing the two sides of the paper is so pretty. And I pulled the two main colors, Moody Mauve and Wild Wheat, to compliment the DSP. Then softened the final layers with the Bubble Bath. It is a great soft look with the Moody Mauve and one I would never have thought until I tried it.
The sentiment and balloon are from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set. Putting an extra sentiment in the center of the pinwheel is a nice surprise. There is additionally a Happy Birthday are on the inside of the card. I made the card a traditional card and then added the pinwheel to the front. This way you see the surprise but still have plenty of room on the card inside for a personal message.
To create the pinwheel you need a 6X6 piece of DSP. Next score at 1 1/2″ on all four sides. Fold and burnish the score lines. Then cut off each of the corner squares. This leaves a square in the center with 4 flaps. Place your paper in the orientation you want your pattern. (Take a minute to look at both sides with a flap pulled inside to decide which you prefer before you have a lot of fold lines!) Beginning with the flap at the top, fold it in so it is laying on the center square then take the bottom left corner and fold it flush along the score line. Turn your paper and do all four sides. To finish, have each flap standing up. Lay the top one to the inside, then the right flap overlapping it, the bottom overlaps the right, and the left overlaps the bottom. Now at the last flap just tuck the not folded edge under the top flap like you would on a cardboard box.
