Rainy Day Project: paper pinwheels

I saw this tutorial on finishing touch event design on how to make paper pinwheels and I thought wow, this is a really simple and adorable diy project. Sooo, on a rainy day (yesterday) I pulled out my pretty patterned paper and vintage buttons and got to work.I wish I would have had more patterned paper, along the lines of vintage wallpaper, but I think they turned out cute. I was experimenting on what in the world to do with them and I added a name banner to one. I think they would make cute place cards, or you could turn them into a napkin ring. Or, as seen in this tablescape, an over sized pinwheel hanging on the back of a chair looks super cute!
