Here is a super easy and super fun tutorial on how to make paper pinwheels
or fans as they are also called. I made a bunch for Isla’s first birthday and knew I
wanted to share with you. They add the perfect decorative touch! Best of all they can
be done for super cheap and don’t take long at all to make.
|To make 1 fan you will need 3 pieces of scrapbooking paper and some glue. That’s it!|
|Turn the page over and start folding the page back and forth like an accordion.
The fold should be approximately an inch in width.
|Once you have folded the entire page, fold it completely in half.|
|Here are all 3 pieces of paper folded and folded in half again.|
|Use a glue stick to glue each end of the individual pages together.|
|Then, when you have glued each 3 pages, glue all of the
ends together and each page and hold down for a moment.
|Take the 2 ends that do not have any glue on them and glue
them and then pull them apart to attach to either end.
|When you pull the glued ends together, this is what your finished product
will look like. See how easy that was?! I then used a hole punch to put a hole at
the top and then I attached some fishing wire to hang.
|I hope you try making these for your next celebration. If you do, I would love to see pictures. Use the hashtag #ourlifewithisla on social media to show me your creations!|
