Brenda Keenan has done some fabulous videos on YouTube, and this was one of them.  Since I don't have a diagonal insert for my ScorePal, I used my Envelope Punch Board for the necessary diagonal lines.  Here's how:

First I chose an 8" square of dsp that was double sided.  Next, I got out my Punch Board, lined up the dsp with the 3 3/8" mark and (without using the punch,) scored on the diagonal line for each side of the paper.  Then I cut out the triangles created on each side and scored the "tabs" (shown green here.)

After flipping the paper over (so that the design I wanted would be on the outside) I scored at 1" for

each of the tabs created.  I then folded the 3" score
lines inward and the tabs outward.  The final step was to fold the card like a cardboard box top.

After stamping the inside, I embellished the outside
with tiny white pearls instead of a belly band.  For the video, just go to YouTube and type in Pinwheel
Fold card and look for Brenda Keenan.  She's very
easy to follow and has lots of other videos worth
checking out.

I hadn't seen this idea - you make it sound fairly easy - and it looks so special.

This is amazing, Doris! What a fun card! Hope your PC problems will be overcome quickly. In case I don't get back over, I wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!
