You will need

  • Patterned paper
  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Buttons
  • Lolly pop sticks (optional)

How to

  1. Start off by selecting which patterned paper you’d like to use. I find double-sided patterned paper to be the best but if you don’t have this, you can stick two pieces together. Cut out a square measuring 10cm x 10cm.
  2. Next fold the paper into quarters then open back out. Measure 1cm out from the centre of the paper between the folded lines and mark with a pencil. Cut from the corners of the square to the marked points between the folded lines.
  3. Alternating between the cut folds, stick into the centre of the paper. Once all alternative folds have been stuck, you can glue a small button or any other small decoration into the middle. Stick your pinwheel to a lolly pop stick or simply use as a decoration.
