Happy Birthday Chaitali!!


Today I want to wish my friend Chaitali a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I sent this card to her and I hope she has received it by now.  

I got my inspiration in church from the VBS group. The invites were pencils with pinwheels on top.  Very fun and summery!  

Paper:  MME & Echo Park
Sentiment: Outside:  Stampin up, Inside:  American Art Stamps
Sketch:  Lets Scrap 5-1-11

So how did I make that pinwheel?  It was very simple.  I cut a 3 inch square out of double sided paper.  and folded the square in half to make a triangle going both directions.  So you have folds with 4 triangles.  I then cut most of the way up on every other fold.  Fold one side to make it look like a pinwheel.  After I did the folds, I put a cute little brad in the middle.

Chaitali's blog is on the left side.  Stop by and give her some birthday wishes!

Have a great day Chaitali!
