4th of July Decor

     Yesterday I decided to break open my June Paper Pumpkin kit.  WOW!!! is all I can say!  That kit was loaded!  Paper to make 24 pinwheels (all precut and punched for quick pinwheel assembling) - 24 straws, 24 cello bags, 24 brads, 24 mini paper clips, 24 paper flags, 3 stamps, and 1 Stampin' Spot.  WOW!!!

     Well, I did not want to just make 24 pinwheels - seemed a little boring.  So I spent some time searching Pinterest and Facebook, and low and behold - ideas!


     I made this birthday banner for my son (his birthday is July 5th).  I CASEd the idea from Janet Wakeland.  It uses 6 pinwheels to make the whole project - including the two boxes (2 pinwheels each).  I used the banner punch and my e-cutter to cut out the letters.  I love how it turned out.

     I've seen pinwheel bouquets all over the place and knew I wanted to make one.  I used a small canning jar.  I made 6 pinwheels (3 on each side).  I cut little strips of card stock (Real Read, Whisper White, Night of Navy, & Smokey Slate) and crumbled each one up and put them in the jar to help hold up the pinwheels.
