I am delighted to welcome back Andrea Pittam from Kiss the Frog to the blog today. Andrea is a photographer as well as crafter and last time showed us how to make these Clay Angel Christmas Decorations. Today Andrea is showing us how to make these super cute paper windmills, which I just adore! I have seen so many of these paper windmills at weddings recently so this tutorial is perfect if you are looking to do something similar, plus they are pretty quick and easy to make.
STEP 1) Take one square piece of paper and fold diagonally. Flatten the paper out and fold on the other diagonal.
STEP 2) Use the scissors to cut on all the diagonal lines leaving 1 cm before you reach the middle of the square.
STEP 3) Pierce holes at the five points indicated by the arrows in the photograph.
STEP 4) Bend the card by taking each outer pierced point towards the middle and insert the paper fastener. Do this for the other three pierced points, fastening each section to the paper fastener as you go.
STEP 5) Push the paper fastener through the centre of the windmill and open it fully.
STEP 6) Turn the windmill over and use the fastener to secure it to the stick. Use a little PVA glue to secure the stick in place.
