Project Instructions

Fan

Cut two 12"x2" strips of royal blue cardstock and two 12"x1½" strips of striped paper.

Score each strip at ½" intervals using the scoring board.

Attach the two blue strips end to end using the adhesive tape.

Fold the pleats like a fan and attach the ends together using adhesive tape so the strip forms a loop. 

Gather the paper loop and press flat, pulling the pleats together. 

Cut a circle about 1½" and glue the pleated fan to the circle using hot glue. This will be your 4" base.

Repeat for the striped strips and glue the 3" striped pleated fan on top of the blue pleated fan.

Glue a button to the front. Set aside.
