Here's what Alisa had to say about her tutorial: I love pinwheels- they are simply whimsical and remind me spring! When I set out to make my own out of paper- I quickly lost the inspiration to cut and fold. So while browsing my local craft store, I came across these tacky princess Disney pinwheels (sorry Disney fans I just wanted something more creative) and I couldn't beat the price- just 99 cents! I decided right there in the clearance aisle I would reinvent these pinwheels and turn them into something I would actually be proud to display!
