Pleats and Pinwheels


I really like the Roxie papers, and when I seen the plaid paper in the kit I knew I wanted to make pleats with it. This is a fairly easy thing to do. I took 2 strips 12 inches long and 1 inch wide each. I then scored the strips at 3/4 ‘’, 1”, 1 ¾”, 2”, 2 ¾”, 3” and so on down the length of the strip. I repeated this for the second strip as well. Then I just folded along the score marks alternating direction. Then I glued it down on my layout.


These pinwheels were also easy to make. You need to start with your paper being square. So for the small ones I used 2 inch square paper and the larger one I used 3 inch square paper. I found the center of the square then cut the corners into the square about half way to the center. I did this for all four corners. Then I used a glue dot in the center and folded one side of the corner into the center on the glue dot to hold it down. I repeated this for all the corners then placed an adhesive sparkle in the center to finish it off.
