Windmills of my mind

Well, not really, but I've had the song on my mind since making this card.  I used the same svg file that featured in an earlier post but cut it smaller (2 inches).

The instructions say to fasten the spokes with an eyelet or brad, but at this size, that's a bit tricky.  Aftrer gluing the 2 windmill pieces together in the centre, I pushed a needle in through the back and carefully threaded each spoke onto the needle.  I then applied some more glue in the centre and pushed the spokes down until the glue dried.  I used Tombow multi which dries quite quickly. Once the windmill was dry, I removed the needle and attached a button.
