Here's what you do:
Cut the cardstock into 8” square pieces using the paper trimmer.
Apply Ultra Thin Dots to one side of the cardstock and adhere the foil papers. Trim excess if needed.
Cut slits from one corner of the square pieces to about 2” from the center. Repeat process to all corners of the square piece. Do the same process for all pinwheels.
Attach an Advanced Strength Dot to one corner of each square. Bring to the center to create the pinwheel.
Add another Advanced Strength Dots to the center and place a button to finish the pinwheel.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
