June Paper Pumpkin Bonus Projects - Pinwheel Party

 The June Paper Pumpkin Kit is called Pinwheel Party and came with the supplies to make 24 pinwheels! They were pre-cut and punched and you can attach them to the paper straws or to the treat bags (also included in the kit). Here's the picture from the kit:

I wanted to make some cards with the kit too... and everyone who gets their Paper Pumpkin kit from me gets any extra supplies and instructions  to make them too! 
For the first one I cut 5/8" off each side of the pinwheel and re-punched holes in the corners to make the pinwheel. I love the stamps in this kit and stamped them around the outside of the white card stock.

This card was CASE'd from one Amy Kunckle made...

I wanted to get away from the red, white & blue theme so I used the blue and grey patterned pinwheel and cut it into strips, and then used Tangelo Twist as my third colour... the big star is from Be the Star.

For this card, I cut the pinwheels apart into triangles (4 triangles), and then cut the triangles in half (8 triangles), and then in half one more time (16 triangles). I created this chevron pattern, then used the stamps around the outside (so easy to do with the photopolymer stamps in the kit)!

This card wasn't one of  the bonus projects included for my subscribers, but I wanted to show it. I was inspired by quilt squares. I used the same sized triangles from the card above to create this 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card. The quilted panel is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Thanks for looking!
