Pinwheel Flowers

Hello Everybody,
I was going through some of my pre-made flowers and ran into these pinwheel flowers I had forgotten about so I'm here today in pinwheel mode. 

To make them I cut two 12 inch strips, one is 1 inch wide and the other is 1 1/2 inch wide, I cut one side of the strip with scissors that had a swirl design cut. I scored at every 1/4 inch, then folded and glued ends and adding a piece of paper on botton to hold pinwheel. This is also a good way to use up some of those paper scrap strips.
My sentiment/scripture stamp is from Justrite Stamps.  And my special little girlee stamp which you have seen me use alot is 'Skinny Minnie' created by Artist/Designer Mary Vogel Lozinak sold through Viva Las Vegastamps! and is Item#18302.

I made this one with flocked black velvet design paper as the background and used Martha Stewarts embroidery diecut. On the pinwheel flowers I really like using pattern paper especially the design on this one with decorated lines and swirls. I also used the scissors with the swirl design blade. The scripture stamp I bought from Hobby Lobby.  
Until next time this Frugal Grannie is out.

Wonderful cards--the pink one is so cute, and the neutral colors on the other give it such an elegant air. Great scripture stamps, too--I have that second one!
