Pin Wheel Part Two

greeting card before 5 x7

When I made the vellum paper pinwheels, I didn’t have a plan what I was going to do with them.  It just was a fun project to use my cool paper straws.  However when I took the time to photograph them, especially after I made the photo prop banner, some ideas popped in my head!

I loved the photo images and thought they would make a cute greeting card.  I like how the card turned out.  It is very rewarding to spend time making a craft and then multi-purposing it into a totally different item.  My friend Dianna has made greeting cards from recipes she has featured on her food blog.  I am going to try to remember to try this more often!

I have always wanted to make a calendar, but you need 12 different images!  Maybe if I don’t worry about starting in January I can actually come up with 12 different images of art that I can assemble into a 8 x 8 calendar!  YAY!  So I have March covered, hopefully I can remember to make an April image.

Since I made the greeting card I thought I might as well made a pdf so folks can print one for themselves.
