Open House Gifts Retired Stamp and Accessories List

HAPPY DAY TO YA. . .    Hope your day is starting off with a bang.  We are a little gloomy here today but boy oh boy do we need the rain.  It's not even June yet and the grass is turning brown.  Look out water bill, it's going to be one of those kind of summers.

I don't have a card to share with you today, but I do have some of my gifts for my Open House this Saturday. Come on by if you live in the St. Charles/St. Louis area.   I had such a good time making the pretty, colorful Pin Wheels.  The were pretty easy too.  I used some of our retiring In Color cardstock and coordintating paper.  Remeber last year you could get a 6 x 6 paper pack of the In Colors as a Hostess Gift.  Great looking patterened paper. 

After many tries of experimenting for just the right size, I decided a 4" square was just right.  Cut a 4" square and score down the center from point to point on both sides.  Then I cut my peice of designer paper just a tad smaller 3 3/4" square.  Fold your lines real well so you have good creases.  Then I adhered my dp to my square.  Cut up the corners about half way to 3/4 of the way.  Don't go any futher or you pen wheel will be too floppy.  On each corner you will need to punch a small hole with your 1/8" hand held punch for the brad to go in and you will need another hold right smack dab in the center of your scored "X".  Put your brad in one corner and gently fold over.  Keep bringing each end up and put your brad in each one then put all four into the center hole and fasten down tight.  Viola you have a pretty pen wheel.

If I have confused you, just Google Pin Wheels and you will find some videos out there.  Easy peasy!!!!!!
