Learn how to make a paper windmill with this step-by-step guide...
You will need
Cut two 20cm squares of paper, one in each colour. Place one sheet on top of the other. Matching edges all round, fold the paper in half diagonally and open out. Fold diagonally again, this time on the opposite diagonal and open out.
Cut from one corner along the diagonal fold stopping around 3cm from the centre. Repeat along the remaining diagonal folds.
Fold four alternate corner sections down to the centre of the paper, holding each section under your thumb at the centre as you work. Place a sticker centrally on the windmill so that it holds the four blades in position.
Take a map pin or push pin and push it through the centre of the sticker and out the back of the
windmill. Push the map pin into the top of the dowelling stick so that it firmly secures the windmill in place, but still allows the windmill to turn. You may need to tap gently home with a hammer.
