We R Memory Keepers – Easter Pinwheels

Hello, We R friends! Enza here to share a new project using some fun tools. Does it ever happen to you to rediscover a tool you had forgotten about? I remember loving the Pinwheel Punch Board when it came out and used it constantly for so many projects! I thought it was fun to create pinwheel party favors for Easter. They came together in no time and are perfect as last-minute diy craft.


I started by choosing patterned paper from the gorgeous Sparkle City collection by Shimelle; I went with more pastel colors that reminded me of Easter. I then trimmed it to measure 4”x4” and used the Punch Board to create the shape for the pinwheels.

The Punch Board also comes with instructions on how to make nested pinwheels, which are not only really pretty and colorful but quite easy to assemble. As you can see in the picture below, I used brads in coordinating colors for the center.

Once those were ready, I hot glued paper party straws to the back; to cover the glue, I also punched a small circle from white cardstock and adhered it on top.

For the sentiment, I wanted something elegant and festive, so I used the Foil Quill system to create little tags. The Kelly Creates USB Drive has a beautiful handwritten alphabet that is perfect for any occasion. I went with the Aqua Foil, which complemented the other colors in the paper. I opted for a simple “Happy Easter”, but I could have personalized the tags a bit more and make them into place cards too! Tip: for small and detailed designs, I use the Fine Tip Pen.

To finish, I tied both the bag of chocolate eggs and the tag to the straws with ribbon.

What do you think? Are these party favors something you would make to surprise your guests? I think they would be perfect for birthday parties and many other occasions.

Thank you for stopping by.
