Yay! Time for some fun Valentines craftiness! In the next couple of weeks, we will be posting so many fun & adorable Valentines projects.
I have been on a pinwheel kick lately. I just threw a Pinwheels & Pearls party for my baby girl who turned one, so I got really good at making pinwheels. I think they are so unique and darling. They are also really easy and inexpensive to make.
Here is a really simple tutorial for making pinwheels:
1. Cut your cute paper into a square. For the cupcake toppers mine were about 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″
2. With a pencil, draw an x from corner to corner on the paper. In the center of the x draw a circle. (I am really naughty when it comes to this step. It is pretty easy just to eyeball it.)
3. Cut each corner of your paper to the outside of the circle.
4. Poke a hole in the center of your circle and fold each of the opposite corners into the center. Secure the folded in corners with a brad. I have also just glued the corners into the center and then put something cute, such as a button in the center. If you don’t care about them spinning, I think that this is an easier way to do it.
I also made some of these cute LOVE cupcake toppers. If you would like to download these toppers for your own Valentine cupcakes, here is the link… http://www.4shared.com/photo/IsxYAhHV/lovecupcaketopper_copy.html
If you are looking for a fabulous way to deliver your yummy cupcake treats to your Valentine, I think that these boxes are the cutest! I found them at Hobby Lobby. They hold two cupcakes. I tied mine up with some fun funky fibers. Absolutely adorable!
