Introduction: Pinwheel Flower
Pinwheel flowers are so fun to make. Let me show you how.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut Out Your Paper
I used 2 pieces 1.5 x 12. If you have decorative scissors cut across the edge to spice it up.
Step 2: Fold the Paper
I have a Martha Stewart cutting board. I scored my paper at every peak and valley on the design.
A cutting board is not mandatory - fold the paper free hand works just as well.
Step 3: Fold the Paper
Now that you have the paper scored..get to folding. Fold the paper back and forth like an accordian.
Step 4: Glue
Glue the edge together.
I used 450 Glue, but anything is wonderful.
Glue the other ends together to form a circle..kinda.
Step 5: Flower Time
Get a slick piece of material..
I like to use some help. I push together my flower and attach some clips to help hold in place. The center of the flower likes to pop up.
Place a dob of hot glue on your slick paper.
Place your flower on top of the glue, push together and hold for a few minutes.
Step 6: Embellish
You made a Pinwheel flower!
Now lets embellish it. Cut a flower and glue to the center, and or ad a button. It's all up to you!
