I confess.  I’m not really a pinwheel kind of girl.  However, when this month’s (June) Paper Pumpkin arrived, I was determined to think “beyond the card” and consider ways I could use the kit–especially considering its red, white and blue theme and the 4th of July right around the corner.  Guess what happened?  I fell in love with my little family of pinwheels.  The kit includes everything you need to make up to 24 pinwheels in a snap!


I created a new 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial to show you how to create the Hershey’s candy bar holder.  It’s based off this tutorial by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Susan Dyas.  Thanks, Susan!

Basic candy bar holder measurements:  Cut Smoky Slate Cardstock to 10 1/4″ x 2 3/4″.  Score the short distance at 5″ and 5 1/4″.  Score the long distance 1/4″ in from each side.
