{ Got Pinwheel? }

There is a card on the Wild Card Cricut cartridge that is called a 'Pinwheel'. The outline looked like Swiss cheese to me, but someone on the Cricut MB made and posted one and I was totally inspired! The card has a wheel that you can turn...and on the wheel you can put different sentiments. I decided to use some Cosmo Cricut PP that was bright and cheery! This is the entire card...the first sentiment on the wheel is 'You're absolutely Fabulous!'

Then you turn the wheel and it says 'No--Seriously, you are!'...and the last turn reveals 'Thanks for being...YOU!'

Instructions: I cut the Card at 7" and it measures 5" X 7". I cut both the frame and the wheel at that setting, as well. I created my sentiments in Word, punched them out with a 1 1/8" circle punch and adhered them to the wheel once it was in place. Due to that, I needed a 'spacer' between the wheel and the Card so the wheel would turn properly. I cut a 3/4" chipboard circle and it worked perfectly. I cut my 'stem' using Plantin Schoolbook (Shift/Tall Ball/Zigzag) at 1", which is the width. A tiny heart-shaped Making Memories brad holds it all together.

  1. I used the "pinwheel" cut on wild card on my son's starwars birthday card (I thought it looked like planets). I think this is a great way to use the cut. Thanks and I will be lifting this one :)

    I nominated you for an award up on my blog. If your interested Check it out on my site.

    Happy crafting
