Pinwheel ornament

Inspired by Lisa Zappa's tutorial (here) I made this little pinwheel ornament for a challenge with the theme A Song in the Air.

The border is stamped with the music and small pennant stamps from the Artsy Banners set and I used the triangles to guide my score lines rather than measuring out on my scoring tool as Lisa does in her tutorial. Robins about to burst into song keep with the musical theme and make this a quick and easy project as it's a printed image so no tricky colouring involved!

How beautiful, Joanne! Love this ornament--and that bird image is one of my favorites.

I hope you're having a wonderful day, my friend, and a lovely Christmas time...

No tricky colouring but there's tricky folds and stamping involved!
