The things that inspired me from the photos were the colors orange and blue, the triangle banners and the pinwheels in the iced tea.
I started with the paper I found at Hobby Lobby. I took two papers and cut out the pinwheel from Mother's Day 2010 at 3.62 inches. I used my Gypsy to size up my project.
I also cut the triangle banner flags out from Mother's Day 2010 at 5 inches using light blue cardstock.
I cut out these scallop shapes from Mother's Day Bouquet at 2.18 inches out of white cardstock. I used my PBD Everyday Occasions stamps to add some green, blue and orange color to them. I inked the edges of the circles green.
I wanted a little bit of color and added the butterflies at the last minute. I was afraid they would be too big but you can hardly see them once the pinwheels are assembled.
I cut out the orange polka dot paper first. Then I flipped my design and cut out the plaid paper. I adhered my papers together. I intended on using double sided paper but did not find the right colors so I made my own!
I used a brad to attach the pinwheel together and to the circle. I found these skinny straws at Michaels in the dollar bin and taped one to the back of each pinwheel. I trimmed the straws so they were not longer than the banner flags.
I used orange DMC floss to string my banner together. I wanted to use twine, but did not have orange and tried to make my own but ran out of patience!!! I think the solid orange looks better so it was all good!
Here is a close up of my pinwheel.
I hung my banner on my daycare door and one of my moms has been eyeing it all week!!! I will give it to her and make her day!! I hope you are having a wonderful spring!
