Pinwheels for You

Here is an easy cheerful project with minimal stamping...

The pinwheels are made with the Lil' Inker Designs mini pinwheel die.  I had a helper, one of my sons did all the cuttlebug cutting.  Once the pinwheels were put together (super easy) I added each to a skewer using glue dots.  I punched a circle from the PP and used that to cover up the back of the pinwheel and hide all the glue dots.  Originally I was going to make my own greenery for the bouquet and purchase moss or something to cover a styrofoam base.  On the way to the craft store though I decided it would be much easier and less expensive to just buy a plant and dress it up!

Details:  PP - MME, Die - Mini Pinwheel Lil' Inker Designs, Sentiment - Verve, and brads from my stash, plus skewers and a chocolate bar from my kitchen :>)
