Day 163

Emily - This is my pond! To be honest I have nothing else to say.

(Kind of funny considering how much my mom wrote)

Jeanine - "Polka Dot Pinwheels"

I've been wanting to try and make these pinwheels for scrapbooking - and maybe to add to a summer centrepiece on the patio.  When I discovered that today's prompt for my photography class was polka dots... I had my motivation.

They are pretty easy to make.  Just cut paper into squares mine were 6X6 and 5X5.  With a ruler, draw an X from each corner.  Then cut along each line toward the centre leaving about 1/2 and inch uncut at the centre.  Fold every other corner into the middle (I adhered with a glue dot).  Then put a brad through the centre of the pinwheel.  I just stuck a skewer up into the glue dots/paper/brad when I was finished, but you could also use a hot glue gun to adhere it to the back of each pinwheel.   It's fun!
