Now I'd like to share my Spring inspired project with you!

I love spring, and as a child I received a pinwheel every year in the spring! You can use them on your layouts and cards, too - here is how to make them:

Start with a square of double sided paper - mine is 2 x 2 inches. Mark the centre and cut up diagonally on each corner:


Now pull up the outer corner of each triangle as shown, and adhere with glue dots.


Decorate the middle with buttons, brads, flowers, even little photos!!! Now here is what I made with mine, using the scraps from the February Kit - check out the weScrap Store for all sorts of cools kits and products!


Not only do we have some fabulous projects to share today but you also have a chance to win a PRIZE! By leaving a comment on EACH iTeam member's blog today, you have a chance to win $100 worth of scrappy goodies! Yup... that's $100 of scrappy goodness for your stash!
