Scratch card pinwheel

To make the pinwheel, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 12 Minisafe instant tickets
  • 1 «Win for Life» instant ticket
  • 1 skewer
  • Sticky tape
  • Double-sided tape
  • Thick paper or card
  • Gift ribbon
  • Cellophane

Time: approx. 30 minutes

Difficulty level: 4 / 6

Here’s how to make it:

Step 1

Fold all 12 Minisafe instant tickets from a corner to form a 45-degree angle, i.e. so that the short side meets the long side. You can staple them along the edge to fix them in place.

Important: Please make sure not to damage the scratch-off coating.

Step 2

Now stick two instant tickets together at a time using a piece of tape (on the rear of the ticket), with equal spacing.

Step 3

Then put all of the pairs together to form a circle and fix them in place with tape.

Step 4

Now cut a circle (approx. 5 cm in diameter) out of the thick paper or card. Then use an awl to make two holes and thread the ribbon through the holes. Stick on three pieces of double-sided tape and glue the skewer onto the cardboard on the same side. Wait for the glue to dry completely before continuing.

Step 5

Now pull the ribbon through the middle of the prepared pinwheel, from the back.

Step 6

Using the double-sided tape you applied, stick the cardboard to the pinwheel.

Step 7

Now roll up the «Win for Life» instant ticket and wrap it in cellophane.

Step 8

To make sure the pinwheel stays together, you can now fix the «Win for Life» instant ticket to the front of the pinwheel using the ribbon.

Step 9

This is what your finished pinwheel looks like.
