Patriotic Pinwheels

We are busy around here preparing for the BIG day! I will again have everyone for breakfast before the parade starts. Here is what I am working on for the tables.

The container is a cardboard Uncle Sam hat from the party store filled with hydrangeas and patriotic pinwheels. If you would like some patriotic pinwheels to help decorate for your Fourth of July celebrations you may download them here.

Large Patriotic Pinwheel

Medium Patriotic Pinwheel

Small Patriotic Pinwheels

Print template on card-stock, cut out, fold tips to center and fasten with a long pin through black dots. The pinwheels can be attached to a pencil by pushing the pin into the pencil eraser. I needed a longer stick so I placed a cap pencil eraser on a 5/16″ dowel rod that I painted blue. I found they really spin well if you add a pony bead for spacing. A star cut out would be a nice touch on the front where the pin is placed.

now back to working on the float….

    described as a start, not only a perfect nor an end solution.

    Wij zijn 3 jaar klant geweest bij Juresta Nederland bv.
    Wij hebben veel klachten over Juresta, ze werpen veel hindernissen op als ze moeten incasseren. Juresta kwam meestal bij ons zeuren dat het een niet haalbare incasso was en dat wij Juresta moesten betalen. Als we dan toch
    wilden doorzetten lieten ze de incasso zaak versloffen. Een ander probleem was dat Juresta wil dat voordat ze iets aan hun klant uitkeren dat die
    klant allemaal fax formulieren verstuurt.
    En ze lieten het ons niet weten als er geld op de rekening bij Juresta binnenkwam.
    Wij adviseren iedereen een ander incassobureau te zoeken, wij zijn nu bij
    een ander bureau zeer tevreden.
