Pinwheels and Ballot Boxes

I got 2 pinwheels made! Finally! These 2 I just put on wooden dowels and nailed in, so they don't spin, but they are cute! I need to try the pinwheel sticks yet - just got them in the mail today! I used the instructions for these on Procrastistamper.

And quilt camp is coming up in 2 short (or should I say long) months! We always pass out treats and surprises, and the theme this year is Hooray for the Red, White and Blue. We thought we could decorate little ballot boxes to collect our treats in. Well I found 2 adorable wood primitive boxes on sale from 4th of July for Laura's and my ballot boxes! Won't it be perfect!

Oh, I want one. That box will hold a lot! Of course, I'm restricted because of flying and everything I need to ship. So better stick with something smaller. Going to check out those directions on the pinwheels.
