How to Make a 4th of July Pinwheel

Exotic Flower Pinwheel

Happy 4th of July!  How about making a fun and festive pinwheel?!?  The perfect DIY project for the 4th of July (or an average summer day!)

Exotic Flower Pinwheel

The key is to always start with a square.  I used Close To My Heart’s Exotic Flower Hostess Stamp Set (B1477) since it is a perfect square.  To make this project interesting, I decided to use a piece of transparency rather than cardstock.  I stamped the image using Black StazOn ink (Z888.)  Then I flipped the piece over and colored in the image using ShinHan’s Warm Grey (Z2468), Carmine (Z2448) and Marine Blue (Z2458) Markers.
