Pinwheel Card Tutorial

Pinwheel CardI love double-sided, patterned paper and have recently been on a quest to find fun fold cards that will showcase both sides of the paper.  The first I discovered was this adorable pinwheel card fold, so I thought I would make a quick tutorial.  I used the following CTMH products on my card:

X7227B Make Waves Paper 
S1802 Sunny Thoughts SOTM
X5941 Bashful Cardstock
X5984 Pixie Cardstock
Z2844 Pixie Ink Pad
Z534 Micro-tip Scissors

Pinwheel card without the belly bandBe sure to take advantage of the Pretty in Pink sale this month where you can save 25-30% on pink items including the cardstock and ink used on this card!

To create the card, you will need the following paper:

  • 8″ x 8″ double-sided paper
  • 4″ x 4″ cardstock or paper for inside
  • 7/8″ x 12″ paper or cardstock for belly band
  • 12″ Zip Strip for decorating the belly band
  • Additional paper/cardstock to decorate your card


Pinwheel card openedOne of my YouTube subscribers sent me a picture of the card she recreated from the video, and I’m thinking I may not have been entirely clear on the instructions, so read this prior to making the card!  Roughly 5 minutes into the video, I show you how to score on the inside of the card to the corner you just cut out.  Please note that you are only scoring on the left side of each flap so that, when folded, your paper looks like the image to the left.

I hope you enjoy this video, and please subscribe to my YouTube channel and share your cards with me in the comments below or on my StudioScrapping Facebook page!

About Author

My adventures as a CTMH consultant began in April of 2007. My goal was simply to meet my minimums so that I could enjoy the consultant discount. Little did I know that my passion for the products and teaching scrapbooking and stamping techniques would lead me to so many new friendships. I've had the good fortune to travel to a variety of CTMH events and was even asked to teach at the Studio J Boot Camp in 2011, Convention Extravaganza in 2012, and on the main stage at Convention 2015.
