Summer Pinwheels

Posted on July 17 2017

Hi, everyone! Can you believe it's mid-July already?  It's the height of the summer, and that means all kinds of beach activities, vacations, and parties.  Are you creating party décor this year?  Follow along as I show you some fun party decorations created with Rinea Foiled Papers.

This month we are partnering with Floracraft and Petaloo.  I received some fun Styrofoam cubes and beautiful flowers.

Rinea Foiled Paper Pinwheels
Pinwheels are one of the summer's iconic items, so I wanted to create centerpieces with pinwheels.   I placed Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper on an older/less sticky Cricut mat and cut out a pinwheel.  The older/less sticky mat allows the foils to be removed easily from the mat.

I love how easily the pinwheel cut.  All I had to do was form it and add it to a stick.

I made a bunch of pinwheels using  Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, Blush/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper,  Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, and Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  Since the foils are double sided, you can choose how to assemble each pinwheel.  Using brads, I adhered Petaloo flowers to the centers of the smaller pinwheels.  Check out all these fun pinwheels I created.  The sizes are 4", 6" and 12".  I decided to use the larger pinwheels as votive holders.

The larger pinwheels were die cut from Copper/Copper Glossy Foiled Paper and Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using the Crafter's Rolls.  Placing the foil on my Cricut mat, I cut the Foiled Papers to fit, then cut them at pinwheels 12".

As you can see, the larger size dies also cut easily.

I painted the Floracraft Styrofoam cubes with pink paint and spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Next, I wrapped a ribbon around each cube and added a bow created with the Bowdabra.
I placed the picks in the cubes so that they can be prominently displayed on a table.
