One thing I love about papercrafting is how it brings me back to the kinds of projects I did in elementary school as a kid. I loved art class and I loved that I could be crafty and creative during an otherwise mundane school day.
Every once in a while, I like to think back on those elementary school art projects and revamp them – with my current, more mature perspective.
Earlier this week I was struck with inspiration that was a total throwback.
Maile Belles designed this ultra cute tag which caught my attention.
I love the simplicity of it and immediately a project was brewing in my head.
The image reminded me of those paper pinwheels I made as a kid. The kind that you fastened to a plastic straw with a brad. The kind that you could blow and make spin. The kind that would never work for me and I would end up dizzy just trying to get the darn thing to turn – just a quarter turn!
Well, anyway – Maile’s image inspired me to revive the paper pinwheel.
First I made a super simple card using Maile’s design.
