It's time for the Bunny Hop Crop!!!


Today is the day!!! The Bunny Hop Crop at Kit'n Kaboodles is going on today!!! Yeah!!!

To help get this party going we are also having a small blog hop too...so if you found me coming from the uber talented Linda's blog...you're doing great...if you didn't start at the KreativeKaboodles blog....be sure to go here so you don't miss a single thing...

So as many of you know I am always on the lookout for project to make with my girls and this cute pinwheel card was just the thing to kick off Spring!!

To make this card you need pattern paper cut to 4x4. For my card I wanted it to look the same on both sides, so I cut two pieces of the fantastic Nikki Silvis U R My Favorite U R Pretty/U R My Heart Paper.



First, fold the paper corner to corner to create a triangle; then fold across the other way creating an X shape in the center of your paper. You next need to cut about two inches along each of the fold lines. You'll then poke a single hole in the center of the paper and on one point of each triangle closest to the cut.


Next, you take a brad and put it through each hole in the points and then finally through the center; to create the spokes on your pinwheel....looking like this:

I rolled a piece of white paper to create my "stick" for my pinwheel and printed my sentiment onto white paper.

I hope you'll give this a try....it's a fun way to celebrate the arrival of Spring!!

be sure to Hop on over to Pam's blog for your next stop along the hop.... (did you find your word here on my blog...if not...take another peek.....)

Happy crafting....Lynda
