LOTS of PINWHEELS!




As you continue through today's posts, you will see that I've been having lots of fun with the May Stamp of the Month - Pinwheel.  I made this bouquet by attaching the pinwheels to fun straws that I found online - and then I located them at local craft stores. 
The straws are from Queen and Co. and are very sturdy paper - and they come a great variety of colors and patterns.  I purchased these from scrapbookpal.com where I found a large assortment to choose from.  I later found them at the local Hobby Lobby store, but with a limited selection.

I was able to pierce a hole at the top of the straw to put the brad through, then used the paper piercer tip to go inside the straw and separate the prongs.  Makes for a very sturdy pinwheel - put it doesn't turn in the wind!
