Many of you have seen the paper pinwheels I create to use as decorations and on gift bags and packages. I use a We R Memory Keepers pinwheel maker to cut the paper for them.
My sister Paula asked me to create some outdoor pinwheels for her. I knew that paper ones wouldn't last long outdoors. I tried plastic scrapbook paper and that didn't work either.
I walked around Staples and found some heavy duty plastic file folders. The blade in the pinwheel maker would not cut the plastic so I made some paper templates. I traced them onto the plastic and cut the plastic by hand.
It was raining so I quickly put one out on my deck. It immediately started to spin around. When I looked outside the next morning the pinwheel was still spinning and was still intact.
So I made these pinwheels for Paula.
Have a great day
