Pinwheel Banner Step-by-Step
Hello, crafters! It’s July 4th, Independence Day here is the good ol’ USA! And so I thought I’d share with you how to make a Pinwheel Banner. Let’s get started!
Pinwheel Supplies:
2 – 2” Squares of Designer Paper
2 – 2” Squares cut from Itty Bitty Plain Bags
Bone Folder
Liquid Glue

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1:
Trim off the bottom of the bag and then open up the bag (2 of these are needed)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2:
Add glue to the bottom of the Designer Paper (DSP) and adhere it to the opened bag

Do this to the 2nd opened bag also

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3:
Take 1 of the squares and fold from corner to corner in one direction, open it, and fold it from corner to corner from the other direction. This isn’t necessary to do on the 2nd DSP/Bag square

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4:
Take your scissors and cut down each of the folded lines toward the middle of the square. DO NOT go all the way to the center!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Step 5:
Take 1 corner of a section and gently “roll” the corner toward the center…DO NOT flatten! Glue this down. You can use hot glue, if desired. But only a little!
Do this to each of the sections, making sure you go the same direction on all 4 sections.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6:
Once all glued down, get some kind of embellishment, rhinestone, pearl…anything you desire…and glue it down into the center of the pinwheel. I used hot glue this time. Set this aside for now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Banner Supplies:
Trimmer & Scissors
Liquid glue
Tag
Ribbon
Twine
Designer Paper is optional to cover your tag.
Now let’s continue on with our project!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 7:
Find the center of the bottom of the tag.
Cut from top right corner to the bottom center, then from top left to bottom center.
Please notice the top left and right edges of the tag (pictured) where I have my cuts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 8:
Adhere ribbon from the top and right corners down, overlapping the ribbon on the bottom for a decorative bottom edge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 9 (Final product):
Now add your Pinwheel in the open space at the top and add some WG Twine by running it through the punched hole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is an easy and fun project to do! And they will make great decorations for your July 4th party! But most of all, have FUN and BE SAFE!

 

 
Blessings, Jeanie Ellis
