A bright and cheerful birthday card of origami pinwheels.
I cut the sentiment from matte black vinyl.
I cut the squares 2" to fold down to 1".
The fold is like a 4-petal flower base, with the corners tucked in.
Here the corners of the pinwheels are folded up out of the way while I glued the squares to the card front.
I used a dab of glue inside the pinwheels to flatten them.
The points are opened up again.
That’s beautiful and looks like it took a lot of time to make.
Wow, the interlocking pieces are so striking! And I love the way the colors go diagonally. Gorgeous!
@endymion As you can imagine, I tried a bunch of different arrangements before landing on this one.
The geometry of the finished card is so satisfying! What a great card.
That is incredible. Looks like SO MUCH work, wow.
Wow! That is not a Rainbow Birthday Card…it is a Rainbow Birthday Gift!
