Paper Bakery + Elle's Studio Team Up

The March Paper Bakery Kit was chocked full of Elle's Studio goodness.
This week the two are teaming up for a grand tour of inspiration!
Here's a little something that I shared on the blog today...I had the most fun with this kit
and all of the charming tags and papers by Elle's Studio.  And I've been holding on
to hope of getting my hands on the NEW designer straws by Queen & Co.
I'm gonna say it... OH MMM GEE!

CREATE A PINWHEEL TUTORIAL
Who doesn't loveee a pinwheel?  They're cute tucked into a gift sack, as a centerpiece, 
added to a door wreath (ooo I'm thinking one of those baby wreaths that hang on hospital doors!!)
and so-on-and-so-on!  Endless ideas!  And the best part is that they're so easy to put together.

Fill an empty jar or bottle with your best friend’s favorite candy, then add a handmade pinwheel 
and a couple of banners to dress it up!  For the pinwheel, you will need a 6×6 sheet of double-sided patterned paper (I used Elle’s Day-to-Day paper).  Score on the diagonal as shown below:


Next, cut along the score lines about 3/4 of the way up as shown below:

 Punch a 1/8″ hole into the lower right edge of each flap and through the center of the paper. 
 Insert a brad through all four holes and then through the center as shown below:

 Now it’s time to add the straw to the back and embellish!  Pierce a hole through the top 
of the straw and insert the brad through and close.

I also cut two of the other banners and just glued them to the front of the straws.

 Now wouldn't this just brighten someone's day!?!
