Daring Card Makers Challenge - Cut It Up

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for this week is

Cut It Up

I've made some layered windmills to dress up three gift boxes I bought a while ago and not done anything with!  The papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics 3 and because they are single sided papers, I glued two sheets together before I cut the windmill shapes using a really old template set from Lakeland.

As they are quite 'bulky' I used foam pads in between the layers and topped off with a brad in the centre of each - I've had these brads for years and just kept thinking they were too pretty to use..... but I need to use my stuff as I have a lot!!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
