Day Dreaming Project!


Good Morning Dreamers! Pammie Kay here..back from vacation in Sunny Florida! It was a wonderful time with great friends. We had not been together since 2019, so it was a well deserved trip.

I am hopping today with my fellow demonstrators from around the globe at Ink Stamp Share. I love to do blog hops because it gives you, my readers, so many examples of the same theme. Today we are doing 3D projects. I am sure that most of them will be great for the upcoming gift giving season!  Mark this hop for later use.

I learned to make this Pinwheel Tower at one of my All Day Crops from my cousin Linda. She is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I love that it is three dimensional,  but folds flat to mail. I am going to try to explain how I did it. But there are TONS of videos that may explain it better.  Let's have a try!        (*I made mine larger to accommodate my salt shaker that i put my pinwheels into. These instructions are for this larger size!)

  • Cut cardstock  6 1/2' x 4 1/4"   Score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 6"
  • Fold and burnish each score line. Put Tear and Tape on the 1/2" piece, and fold opposite end down to make the square peg for center.
  • Cut 4 pieces of  cardstock 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". 
  • Decorate as you wish. My mats were cut at 2 1/2' x 4". The side pieces were cut 1" x 4". 
  • Glue to sides of tower. 
  • I used 1 1/2" squares to make my pinwheels and taped them to some beading wire. I poked them into the lid of a salt shaker and twisted the stems together to get the to stand where I wanted them to be!

I used the newest Hostess DSP pack for my card. There are so many wonderful patterns in it. Ask me how you can get yours in the comments!

It is a simple process. The only thinking part of it was to put the correct "side pieces" on the back of the correct flap!  I MAY have had to redo one!  I suggest not using as many popped up pieces as it does not fold flat! I am not mailing mine so it isn't a problem. The pinwheels were added to just give it a touch of whimsey, but are not necessary if you just want the card. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. If so, please leave a comment below. Now it is time to hop to the next blog for more great inspiration.  

I'm Dreamin' of more crafty times with you all....You keep Dreamin' too!
