We invite you to join us at the One of a Kind Facebook Group at 12pm CST on December 4 to explore the trendy, new pinwheel card structure. I've developed a formula to efficiently make the card base and panels from just eight sheets of paper.

Tropicale Pinwheel Card by Club Scrap #clubscrap

I was so intrigued when I first saw the pinwheel card zoom into popularity with card makers everywhere. True to form, I wanted to find a more efficient way to make one. And I rarely make "just one."

We'll combine our trimming, organizing, scoring and assembly skills to create a set four interactive cards. The unique design allows the card to stand on its own, but still lie completely flat for mailing.

Purchase and download this clever formula to help you create a batch of four pinwheel cards. You'll need two 12x12 papers for each card, for a total of eight sheets.

Watch this quick video for more information about the project . . .

For these samples, I used papers and card kit cutaparts from Club Scrap's Tropicale collection. You can also use your favorite stamp images and papers to complete the cards!

Tools & Supplies

To participate in the virtual workshop in December, we recommend gathering the following:

(8) 12x12 Papers
CS® Card Kit Cutaparts or Stamps
CS® Bookbinding Glue
Favorite Adhesive
12” Paper Trimmer
3x14" Grid Ruler
Accordion Pocket File (optional)
Bone Folder
Scissors and Pencil

If you like the idea of learning more creative ways to trim, score and assemble greeting cards efficiently, consider a membership to our monthly card club! You'll make a dozen cards -- four each of three styles. Our monthly kits always include a full video workshop to guide you through the making of the cards, all for less than the price of a typical workshop!

I hope to "see" you on December 4 . . .
