I've been up early this morning making some decorations for our upcoming BBQ party. I'm really looking forward to it and have been planning to add a real summer theme to the day. A part of this summer theme I thought I'd make some small windmills. These windmills don't move around (you need those what I call 'butterfly pins' for that) These are for creating something extra special for your cakes or to add to your display.
Here's what you need:
- Take a small square of paper and draw 4, small lines from each corner to near the centre of the paper. It doesn't matter if each line is slightly shorter/longer than the other
- Carefully cut along the lines
- In picture one, I have numbered the corners you need to fold
- Fold the corners one by one using the sticky tabs to secure in the centre of the paper.
- You now have your windmill!
- Using the sellotape, place a stick (I used a stick made for cake pops!) securely to the back of your paper windmill
- Add something extra to finish off the look (if you haven't pinned the centre instead)
I hope this tutorial was simple and easy to follow. I've made quite a few now as you can see. Children will love helping you make these. I haven't bought anything extra, I've used scrap papers, cake pop sticks (you could use cocktail sticks) and any extras from my craft box.
