How to Make a Tag Punch Flower Pinwheel

Once again it is HOW TO TUESDAY. Today I'll show you how to make a pinwheel flower using your tag punch. I would love to say this is my idea, but it wasn't. I had a really fun upline meeting the other night, and my great upline Kristin showed us a card she had gotten from one of her customers Jean. It was this totally fun pinwheeled flower and I thought-there's my next how to Tuesday idea. She used some older designer paper, but I thought the new paper was perfect for this idea. So here we go:Start by punching out a series of paper with your tag punch. I used the bigger one for mine and I punched out 7 tags.
Now take the lower left corner and fold it up to the right corner before the top of the tag.
Your fold should look like this when done. Now take the top of the corner and fold it back to make a small triangle.
Your finished folded tag should look like this.
This is the finished product with the petals arranged to make a flower. I added some of the fun new Rhinestones to accent it and then the word "KIND" from Baroque Motifs. The blue paper is the new new Soft Sky, and then layered on the Purely Pomegranate.
Thank you to Kristin and Jean for such a fun idea!

Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
