I am in love with two new dies I just got from Lil' Inkers. They make the most fun pinwheels you have ever seen.  They come in two sizes.  The pinwheel on the card below is made with the Original Pinwheel die.

Here is a peek inside the card:

Here are some lunchbox notes I whipped up using the mini pinwheel die  (of course, there are chocolates inside).  These mini pinwheels are the perfect size to decorate the lunchbox notes.

If you have been reading my blog at all, you know that I am in love with the Seed Packet Die.  I felt it was only right to introduce my two loves and see how well they would get along......

I think it's a match made in heaven, don't you?

You would not believe how quick and easy it is to make these pinwheels.  There is a tutorial here on the Lil' Inker website.  Basically, you just cut 6 little 'petals' and attach them with a brad.  You need double sided paper, although I think I might just try stamping on the white back side of regular patterned paper.

Here is what the dies look like:

Also, I need to say that this is the first time I have ever ordered from Lil' Inker, and I was so impressed with their level of service and how quickly they shipped my dies.  

I have lots more planned for this die, so stay tuned.

  1. OMG! These are stinkin adorable. I love the PP you chose. The mini ones are sooooo cute. You have been busy.
    I like your idea about making your own pattern paper for the 2nd side. Much cheaper too! Need to save money so we can buy more PTI.

  2. Wow! These are adorable! I also like that you have been showing us the inside of your cards. The inside looks beautiful and finished too. Boy I sure could get some use out of these.

  3. That is a great die. Love your cards.

  4. Joyce...........I just got my very first order from Lil' Inkers yesterday, too.......Isn't that die just fun, fun, fun??? I also got the sentiments and that new flower die. Hopefully I'll try them out soon.

    In the meantime, your pinwheels are adorable and perfect for that seed die w/ a gc inside! Love all the ideas you just gave me! Have fun with your new goodies!

  5. Joyce, I am beyond thrilled to hear that you're loving your new dies. You've showcased them beautifully and I LOVE them with the seedpacket die. Thank you for the nice words you had to say about Lil' Inker Designs! You've totally made my day!

  8. These look great, Joyce! I was debating on getting that die-- it's so cute! I love how you made it on the lunchbox note diecuts and the seedpacket and your cards are wonderful!
