Pinwheel Die-tips and tricks

Everyone loved the whimsical look of this card during our Stamp Camp last Saturday.  This card uses a few of our new products as well as some ‘older’ ones.








  • new Pinwheel Die #129411
  • Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP #126922
  • Wishes Your Way stamp set #129156
  • Gift stamp is from Patterned Party stamp set #123067 main catalog
  • Rhinestones
  • Brights Brads
  • Pokey tool and mat

Okay, here is my TIP: Poke out the holes then put center hole onto the pokey tool.  Fold each point in and slip hole over tip of pokey tool until all corners are folded in.   THEN, slip off of pokey tool while holding all pieces in place.  Send tip of pokey tool down thru the center (opposite of before), then remove and place brad thru the holes (All, while holding all pieces in place with one hand).  It may take you a few tries but is a piece of cake by the 3rd try.  So cut out a few from scraps and practice once or twice then you’ll be a PRO.
