This past summer I had a bridal shower for my daughter Emily in my home. Of course, I wanted to make everything myself. Lol! Looking back, I see that I need to work on my delegating skills, not to mention that whole ‘perfectionist’ issue I have going on. Anyway, I found some really cute bridal shower wrapping paper that fit perfectly with my ‘ vintage’ theme. I wanted to incorporate it somehow into my decorations. I decided to make pinwheels with it and attach them to the favor bags. I found a great pinwheel tutorial from Hoosier Homemade.
I made my pinwheels 6 inches. Instead of using craft paper, I printed a 6 inch square of a pink gingham design onto sticker paper. I cut my wrapping paper into 6 inch squares and stuck it onto the back of the pink gingham sticker squares. I used a hole puncher instead of scissors to make the pinwheel holes for the paper fasteners. I punched a hole in my party bag as well. Then I just popped the paper fastener on the pinwheel into the hole on the bag and it was done. Quick, easy, inexpensive and so cute!
