Big Paper Pinwheel Flowers

Here is a fun and easy way to dress up your room or party! 

Here is what you need:
Decorative Paper from CanvasCorp
Adhesive Cork stock from CanvasCorp
Twine from CanvasCorp
Decorative Clothespins from CanvasCorp
Glue Gun
Paper cutter/Scissors
{ignore the thread!}

1. Cut your paper in to four 6X12 inch strips... I used two 12X12 Papers for one large flower

2. Take one strip and accordion fold it all the way across.  My folds were about about an inch wide.
Repeat for all 4 strips

3. Staple your strips together to make one long folded strip

4. Staples the ends together to make a circle

5. Use something round and trace a circle on the back of your cork stock.  Cut out the circle and use your hot glue gun and put hot glues all around the outside of the circle.

6. Push down the center of your circle to make the flower.  Glue your cork stock to the center and wait for the glue to cool and flip it over

7.  run your twine through the clothespin and tie it to make a loop.

8. Hang it from a tack or nail

9. {optional} make more and hang them up together!
