How to make Paper Pinwheel DIY
Things You need
- Color Paper
- Scissor/Anti Cutter

At First take a piece of color paper. Make the paper in rectangle shape using scale and Scissor/anti cutter. Paper size may vary depends on your windmill size. If you want to build a big one then you must take a big paper. Otherwise paper size can be 15cm X 15 cm.
After cutting paper in rectangular shape fold the paper from both corner. I indicated here using dot line. If you don’t want to fold the paper then you can use pencil to draw the line showing the picture below.
Mark the paper with some dot using pencil from the papers each corner. As I took 15 cm paper so I marked here 7 cm from each corner. This marking is very important to make Paper Pinwheel DIY because if you mark randomly then your propeller can be carved. so maintain proper ratio. Basically mark would be below one forth from the length from one corner to another.
Cut through the marking point from each corner and fold it like the shape below. Finally attached with each other with glue.
Make a round shape paper using scissor and attach the paper tip on the center of the Paper Pinwheel DIY. Now your paper windmill wheel is ready. Its time to make a holder.
