Summer party

Today I got myself into the summer party flow making some cute matching
windmills to pop into lemonade, cupcakes, sweetie jars and a little table seating card.

I used the gorgeous

from Tutti Designs

I used one sheet of 6 x 6 inch double sided paper and cut
the square sizes you can see in photo.

I folded the paper from point to point, as shown, and burnished the folds.

I then cut up each fold just about a centimeter short of the centre point.

I added some tape runner and proceeded to bring one point of each cut up to centre.
They are held together with a silver square brad which attached them to the straws.
The little table seating card is 2" x 2.5", folded in half.
Stamp your sentiment and secure the smallest windmill to the side using the brad.

Easy and quick and you know your squares will be perfect using these great dies.

For my project I have used

As I got carried away making these I decided to do a card for the birthday girl too.

Items used:
LOTV image
coloured with promarkers
Papers from Tutti Frutti DSP
Metal Brads for centres of windmills

I would like to enter this into:
