Cupcake toppers How to craft a pinwheel

Updated on July 27, 2014

Pinwheel Topper

For my best friend baby shower I created these delicious Brazilian sweet treats to give out to each guest and in order to make them fun I decided to decorate them in fun colors and most importantly added a fun PINWHEEL toppers that I crafted with love. The Pinwheel toppers were a total hit and made the table look so pretty and fun that I figured it would be a good idea to share with you guys how I crafted those. The fun thing is that they can be used for not only sweet treats, but also salty appetizers and cupcakes. In addition they can be crafted with any card stock paper design or color you like and they are also so much fun to craft. It is a great project to start up with the kids for their next birthday party. Hope you enjoy crafting them as much as I did.
