Zinia's Pinwheels Layout

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a really fun layout that’s perfect for using up your paper stash, making use of scraps or your 6x6 paper pads. For my page I used supplies from Amy’s Hustle & Heart collection but all of her beautiful lines can work for this design.


The whole layout is based on some adorable DIY pinwheel embellishments. They are super easy to make and you can go for any size you want depending on the paper pieces you have available. You can chose to make them all with the same size like I did on my layout but you can also play around with different sizes for more variety on your page.


To make the pinwheels just start with a square piece of pattern paper (I used 2.5x2.5” but you can go for any size you want). For optimal results use double sided pattern paper cause both sides will be equally visible.

You want to create diagonal cuts going from the corner of the square towards the middle without cutting all the way through the center. Do that for all four corners and you will end up with a piece cut down into four triangles that are attached in the middle.


Then you want to pull the right corner from each of those triangles and attach it in the middle of the square. Repeat that for all the triangular pieces and your pinwheel is ready.

To cover up the adhesive in the middle of the pinwheel you can add fun embellishments or stickers. The wool pom pom stickers from the Hustle & Heart collection are perfect for this job.


I arranged my pinwheels into a circular design trying to spread the colors around as evenly as possible. I also sprinkled the outer edge of my circle with puffy hearts in coordinating colors just to add some extra detail.


In the inner part of my design I added my photo and journaling along with a few stickers to help everything come together.


I really hope you got inspired by this page and you will make your own version of this pinwheel layout. Until next time, happy crafting.
