Handmade Rakhi | Felt Rakhi | Kids Origami Pinwheel Rakhis

 
Hi there..crafty people..hope you are having fun in your life!
Sharing with you some cute pinwheel rakhi that me and my little one made for her brothers! They are damn simple and fast to make. Here is how we made these:
 
Material needed:
Coloured felt/ fleece
Hand made paper
colourful ribbons
Buttons/beads
Glue gun
Glitter
 
Procedure:
1.Cut the card board in small circle for the base of the rakhi. I used a scallop punch for cutting my base.
2. Cut the different felt into square shape around 2 inch in length.
3. Cut slit on the square felt from each corner. Leave some space in the centre.
4. Fold the corners and bring them to the centre (origami pinwheel), stick the corners in the centre using glue gun or other glue.
5. Stick a button on the centre. Now stick this pinwheel on the card and stick the ribbon. Let the rakhi dry.
6. Decorate it with glitter as you please :)
