Hello SCT friends, it’s so good to be back here on the blog with you! The fans and team here at Scrapbook & Cards Today are some of the best around, and it’s a pleasure to share this celebratory project with you!

Spring is coming and this happy hopeful season always brings to mind celebrations of all kinds—birthdays, showers, weddings and parties. So, I wanted to share a fun idea for an invitation with you. These pinwheel party invites can be made for any occasion, and are sure to catch your guests’ interest—they won’t forget about these any time soon!

Supplies: Pinwheel Punch Board, Pinwheel Attachment Kit, Enamel Dots, 6×6 paper pad, cardstock, eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Washi Wraps (We R Memory Keepers); ribbon (Offray); permanent journaling pen (American Crafts)

The We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel Punch Board made quick work of these invites. And what’s even better, is with this tool you’ve got a few different options—you can make basic four-vane pinwheels, or you can make nesting pinwheels (pinwheels using two sheets of paper that interlock to make a full pinwheel with eight vanes!) The nesting pinwheels can be made with two sheets of the same paper, or two different papers to add more color and visual interest

Along with the punch board, We R Memory Keepers also offers a Pinwheel Attachment Kit that includes ten spinning attachments and ten 15” grey striped paper straw handles. I used the attachments and paper straws to make my invitations so that they are actually functioning spinning pinwheels—more fun for my guests!

Once I created my pinwheels, I wrote up the details of the shower with permanent ink on our new Washi Wraps and mounted them on strips of plain teal cardstock. Then I used my Crop-A-Dile to add an eyelet and some ribbon for tying. These unique 3D invites can be mailed in a box, or hand-delivered for a more personal touch. They’re a great way to make an impression on your invitees before they even arrive at the party!
