Spinning Pinwheel Cards – Crafting With My Nan!

Hi everyone, earlier today I shared a lovely tutorial showing you how to make these beautiful Pinwheel cards, but the star of the show is my wonderful Nan, Evelyn.

Spinning Pinwheel Cards

We spent a lovely afternoon last week doing some crafting and making these cards, check out nans below, it’s beautiful and she had so much fun making it.

We used the new Fresh Floral’s kit from Issue 184 of Papercraft Essentials available here.

Fresh Florals Kit.

These are very easy cards to make, even with the spinning element.

They look nice with or without a sentiment, so don’t always think you have to have writing on the front of your cards, sometimes they actually look better without!
