4th of July Pinwheels

These are soooo easy to make!  My new fav craft because it only takes a few minutes.

All you need is...
cute double sided scrapbook paper
wooden dowels ($1 @ Dollar Tree or Walmart)
stars or buttons for centers
hot glue gun

Cut different size squares, I did a 3x3 4x4 & 5x5 for these pinwheels.  At each corner cut a line towards the center but not all the way through.  So you will have four slits.  Then take one corner, put a dab of glue in the center & glue down.  Repeat with every other corner.  Pick a center to glue in the middle.  And to finish, glue a wooden dowel on the back.  And you're done!  Make as many as you'd like  :)  You could even add these to a wreath, a picture frame or make a banner out of them.  So many fun possibilities.

Find a cute bucket or jar to hold them in.  You can use styrofoam, beans or marbles to make them hold up straight.
