Mardi Gras Pinwheels

Removable Party Mount or Glue
PGG Foil Streamer (2" x 25ft)

MG Pinwheel supplies

1. First, cut out a square of the foil streamer. You can make sure the square is even by folding up one corner to make a diagonal, and using the straight edge as a guide.
2. Fold the other diagonal, and unfold the square.
3. Cut along each of the folds 3/4 of the way from corner to the center.
4. Place a small square of party mount (I cut one into 4 pieces for the right size) or a dab of glue in the center.
5. Bring one corner edge to the center, and press firmly. Repeat with the same corner edge all the way around.
6. Make more and start decorating!
