You may know I’ve been on a mission to use up all my bits and pieces of DSP I’ve been hoarding for years.   One of my favourite ways at the moment is the Sizzlets Pinwheel die from the current Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Catalogue.   At just $8.95 I have to confess to buying two – so I can make 2 pinwheels at the same time.   One just wasn’t enough!

And why would it be when just like magic you can take a bag of old paper scraps …


run them through the Big Shot to get some cute little die cuts like this …


Which turn into gorgeous little pinwheels like this!


If you Google “stampin up pinwheel die tutorial” you will see lots of YouTube videos shared by kind demonstrators who will show you how to put the dies together to make the pinwheel.

In summary though – fold in each corner and secure in the middle with a brad – too easy!

The Pinwheel die is available in the current Seasonal Catalogue page 33 – item no 129411, $8.95.
