Patriotic Pinwheel Flag!

  

I'm in full red, white and blue mode!

This flag has been floating in my imagination for awhile now...


And here she is!
So fun, right??


I started with thick 12x12 scrapbook paper in flag shades of red, white and blue!


Cut each sheet of paper into 4 equal squares.
Then cut 3 1/2 inches from each corner into the center.
Bring every other corner to the center, 
then secure with a push pin and silicone earring back.


Soon you'll have a pretty little pile of patriotic pinwheels!


Pull off the backs of the pinwheels and poke the thumb tacks through a canvas,
securing them with the earring back on the canvas back.


And there you have it!


Hope you enjoy!

Happy 4th!
