Paper Favor Bags act as the base and with the addition of lollipop sticks and stacked buttons, the pinwheels begin to take on their true character.

Patriotic Pinwheels Materials

Trim the favor bags to 5 inches square. Remove the loose side pieces and glue the bag squares together at ALL four corners (see arrows).
