MFT Teasers - Perfect Pinwheel

Happy Monday and welcome back for Day 4 of MFT Teasers for July.  Today I'm showing you a super fun stamp and die set called Perfect Pinwheel.  My daughter loves pinwheels so I was super excited to use this die.  It's also quick and easy to use.  I cut my pinwheel from some Basic Grey Sweet Threads papers and added a sentiment from the stamp set, some rhinestones and the new Solid Bracket Border die.  


I decided that I wanted to make a little something to go with my card, and I happened to spot my big Costco sized bucket of Double Lollies.  I enlarged the center hole of the pinwheel a bit and threaded them onto my sucker.  


I stuck some floral foam in an Ikea plant pot ($1.99 - yeah baby!) and inserted my lolly pinwheels.  


Cute, no?
