What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #211

Tuesday afternoon at the kitchen table. Playing with pin wheels and punches.

P1020734

I was trying to come up with some ideas for masculine cards for next week’s class. I also had out lots of small punches to make some other embellishments.

P1020735

Here’s a closer look at one of the pin wheels made up. You don’t really need a die at all, but it does make mass production a lot quicker.

For anyone who was interested in the finished card, shown in last Wednesday’s sneak peek, it can be found here. I’ve shared the others we made last week too.

I’m off to link up with Julia and see what everyone else has on their desk. Have a great week.

Hi Fiona
That's the thing about dies isn't it .... They do make things easier who would have thought you'd need a square die? But you do
Janet off to look at your cards @42

Christine said...

I love windmills - have loads in my garden!!! never used them on cards thought ..... maybe time to try.

I think it is great that one can get dies for almost anything nowadays.

The die may not be needed, but the trick of choosing good paper to cut the windmill from is all part of the skill..this stripe is perfect!

The Taming of the Glue said...

The die looks interesting...is it a Sizzlet? I'm sure they'll have a great time at the class with it.

What a perfect addition to any die cutting station. And that paper is perfect, too. And because it's still Wednesday in my part of the world, have a super WOYWW from #17.

The tea has probably gone cold by now because it has taken me so long to get around everyone but its okay! I made it to you! I adore pin-wheels, you know I do, and I love the idea of a gadget to help with that.
