I Love This and That: fun paper windmills

fun paper windmills

These are fun and easy to make.

You can use them for kiddies parties, baby showers, kitchen teas, weddings, Christmas parties, or just for fun... choose your paper according to your theme!

I'm making a few of these for a friends coffee shop... to give a bit of a festive feel over the Christmas season.

What you need:

  • Paper (I find that scrap booking paper work very nice. You get the paper that's printed both sides, that the one you should get! It's square so you get 4 squares out of one sheet unless you want to make a huge windmills)
  • Stick (kebab sticks work perfect, if you make small ones)
  • Split pins
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil

Cut the piece of scrap booking paper into four smaller squares.

Now fold the small square corner to corner, open and fold the other corner to corner.

You now have lines that cross the square diagonally. Cut along these lines till about one centimeter from the center of the square.

I prick a hole about half a centimeter from the point of every second flap (these are the ones being folded in) and a prick in the center of the square.

You can then fold the pricked corners in and push the split pin through each corner, then through the center. Open the pin at the back, and wrap it around the kebab stick (a drop of glue will help to secure this)

And there you have a paper windmill.  Now stick it into a pot plant, a bottle, into cupcakes... just anywhere you can find to stick them in :-)
