valentine ballerina pinwheels ... ♥ with fptfy!

i feel so blessed
by all your words of encouragement to me last week
and all the congratulations you gave me
i can't say thanks enough
for reading, following, and for ... well ...
lovin' this little blog here
i appreciate you all so much

enough with the mushy
another Valentines day project comin' you way today!
teamin' up with my bloggy bestie

♥ Keren from Free Pretty Things for You ♥

Click HERE to download the image for this project!

Keren's pretty little vintage ballerina image is cuter than cuteness
it had to be used for something Valentines-ish
i can't say it enough ... Heart Day crafts are just my favorite!
come on, let's make some stuff ♥

print, cut, then gather some supplies:
scrapbook paper, white tulle, paperclips and some ribbon 
(last two are not pictured)

i cut a small piece of tulle and scrunched it up 
then put it through the sewing machine to give the tutu a little dimension :) 
(hot glue would work too)

one. ♥ for the pinwheels, start by cutting your paper down to 8.5 x 8.5
two. ♥ cut that piece into four even sections
three. ♥ fold each piece into four sections (like a fan) 
then fold the whole thing in half, and paperclip the two sides together
four. ♥ do it for all four of the square pieces, 
using the paperclips to connect them together
(i used two paperclips to secure the middle as well)

flip it over and glue the ballerina to the front

punch a hole in the top to thread some ribbon through
lastly ... make more!

are you having a Valentines Day party? or a little girl's birthday party?
simple & fast party decor ... and cute to boot :)

thanks again to lovely, sweet Keren, for providing the vintage image!

happy crafting ♥
