Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Wishes

Here is another birthday card 3x3 inch, that I made using pinwheels. It is small so it has to be simple. I try to embellish with some elements to make it more cute, yet keep the cost down. I should work on the background more I think. I made the pinwheel out of DSP that is printed on both sides. I started with punching out a square and then cutting to the center from each corner. I didn't cut quite all the way to the center. I then folded the points to the center and anchored them with sticky tape or a glue dot and then put in the button brad. I also took some thread and made it into a bow and stuck it in the middle on the brad. The stick is made by rolling up some regular white printer paper.
