So, here is my project for today!  A 4th of July Pinwheel Centerpiece!  This would be perfect for the holiday and Summer at a BBQ or picnic. Set it up for your own occasion or take to give as a gift!  Either way it is a perfect decoration!  The files I used to make this are from  They are the Deluxe Pinwheel.....this one is actually a freebie on the blog!!  I also used the ADORABLE new collection, Made In The USA SVG Kit and Charlottes Favor Boxes SVG Kit.  (On the box, I just welded a grass strip to it).  I love this project, I love the colors and the "fun-ness" of it!  I actually had a crazy time trying to take pictures of this.  It was windy out and the pinwheel worked so well, it just kept spinning in the wind!  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.  Let me know what you think!

On the last Blog Hop Day, I will be giving away a $10 gift card to!  Winner will be randomly picked and announced on the 16th.  Here is what you must do to be in the drawing for the gift card:
