STEP 2- DESIGNING A PAPER
The second step is totally optional in this step I am going to design my boring paper with crayons you can take anything to design your paper or you simply take design paper or printed paper that has a pattern instead of simple paper. if you will take the design paper you should skip this step.
STEP 3- DRAW A LINES
After designing, in this third step, you have to draw a line starting from every corner towards the centre or we can make diagonals. as shown in the above diagram. you can simply use a pencil and ruler/scale to draw the lines.
Tip- If you are using printed paper where one side is white and the other has a pattern, make sure you draw the lines on the white side of the paper.
STEP 3- CUTTING
In the third step Use the scissors to cut down the corner halfway to the center that you just marked on your paper. as shown in the above image.
STEP 4- PASTE WITH GLUE
in this step take one corner of the cutting bring it to the center of the square and paste it with glue, now take second corner. Repeat the same with remaining corner.
STEP 5- INSERT THE PUSH PIN & ATTACH A STRAW
Now put the pushpin through the center of the paper, now push the remaining pin in a straw. here I am using this craft straw it is easily available on market or you can order online, or you can use plastic straw. it is not compulsory to take this straw you just simply take ane any wooden stick or pencil to do so.it is a very easy and quick step it just hardly takes few seconds. After doing this step take a masking tape and paste it into the backside of pinwheel so the your finger does not get hurt.
STEP 6- ENJOY YOUR PINWHEEL
Finally your pinwheel is ready, try blowing at the edges of the pinwheel to make it spin. If your pinwheel doesn’t rotate simply loosen the pin a bit , it will start rotating, Enjoy!
