Happy Birthday - Papercraft Star

It is time for challenge 47 at Papercraft Star! Can you believe that in just a few more weeks Papercraft Star will turn 1!! This weeks challenge is a sketch and it's a fun one!

For this challenge I chose to make a card. I have been wanting to incorporate a fun pinwheel on a project and this sketch was perfect!

I used the Styled Labels Sizzix die to cut the ticket that I have the sentiment on. All I did was trimmed each end and each of the rounded edges of the top and bottom to get this fun ticket shape. I punched two holes using a standard hole punch to slide the pinwheel stick through.

I had such a fun time making these cards!! I even made some pinwheels for my girls to play with! :)

Regan, I needed this pinwheel die a while ago for a challenge. I wish I knew they had a die for this back then. Oh well!

This card is just too much fun. My kids would have a blast with a pinwheel card!
