Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro here, bringing you a quick gift — pinwheel gift boxes — inspired by our week’s theme: Memorial Day. In Chile we don’t celebrate Memorial Day, but our flag colors are also red, white, and blue! I thought I could make some pretty party favors for our next independence day celebration.
To make the pinwheel gift boxes, I used two punch board by our friends at We R Memory Keepers: The Pinwheel Punch Board and the 1,2,3 Punch board and some red white and blue supplies by different Pebbles’ lines.
My pinwheels are 3 inch wide and doubled. Just follow the board instructions, it is very easy! The blue paper I used is from the Sunshiny Days collection, and the red one is from our last Valentine collection, My Funny Valentine.
I held my pinwheels in place using blue and red brads.
As sentiments, I used the “Thank You” stickers found in this Simple Life booklet. You get 42 stickers in this booklet and it is perfect for card making!
I created the boxes with the 1,2,3 Punch Board, using the same red and blue papers. The white paper has tiny hearts embossed and it is from our sister brand, Bazzill Paper.
I filled the boxes with chocolates and glued the pinwheels on top.
These pinwheel gift boxes are quick to make and can be used as gift for the families of those who lost their lives serving the country during this Memorial Day, or also as a 4th of July party favor.
You could also include a little thank you or love note inside the pinwheel gift boxes. I am sure the families would really appreciate it!
Have a great week!
