  4. Gently bend every other point into the center of the square. Insert a bent paperclip through the back of the pinwheel and each of the points to hold the paper in place. Glue and/or tape the tips to the back of the small circle.

  5. Apply glue along the long edge of the unprinted (or back) side of the right edge of the paper (opposite the pattern, not the edge with the fold lines).

  6. Fold and roll together 3-4 times along the fold lines at the left side. This folded section will give you something to tightly wrap the rest of the handle around.

  7. Tightly curl the rest of the paper around the folded section and apply glued section when you come to the end. The curled cylinder should be no wider than 1/4 inch.
