Pinwheel Award Ribbon Instructions

Sorry I didn't get this posted before the weekend! Please forgive me. Hopefully this helps you see how the pinwheel file works. There are two sizes of pinwheel strips included in my file so you can layer them if you want. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.Lori

It's BEAUTIFUL!! I've already bought it but haven't cut it yet. Quick question about the tissue box file: Is it all one piece or multiples so that it can be scaled up to the standard tissue box size? Many of us want to use it as a reusable skin for our actual tissue boxes.

Thanks Becky! The tissue box is all one piece and it's small. I'll have to play with it to see if I can create a full size tissue box in several pieces. Great suggestion. Thanks for posting. Lori

I've tried the pinwheel several times but I have trouble when it comes to connecting the loose ends. I always end up with a hole in the center and it makes the pinwheel loose and "fan" out. Do you have any suggestions on how to make it look as neat and tight as yours? Your's are just beautiful and I'd love to make mine look like that. (I do have the silhouette cut design that I use.)
Thanks so much for any help.

AngeLikeMe... Did you cut the file at actual size or scale it up? It sounds like maybe your strip is too long. It should be just over 13.5" long. Let me know if this is the problem. If not... maybe you could send me a photo. Thanks. Lori

What is the buckle shape for?

It's just for embellishing. It'd be cute with a piece of ribbon tied through it and put on top of the pinwheel.
