Hello everyone, welcome to my blog. July already, and Stampin’Up! have launched the Bonus Days promotion for the month. For every £45 you spend in one transaction (before P & P) in July, you get a voucher code for £4.50 that you can use to buy SU goodies in August. (And if you’re a demonstrator you get to order from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue from the end of July. If you’re not, there’s a great joining offer on during July ...just sayin’!)
The weather’s been a bit warmer lately and I’ve been feeling the need of a cooling breeze. Under those conditions, a paper fan is a handy thing to have around and it looks like a lot of people agree with me, because a quick search on Pinterest turned up quite a few versions!
This is my attempt. It was very easy to make and would probably be something that an older child could manage, maybe with some help with gluing the sticks in place. Because both sides of the fan show when it’s open, double sided paper (where both surfaces are pretty) works best. I used Delightful Daisy. Here’s the tutorial –
Oh, if you noticed that the sound in the tutorial was a bit different - there was an airshow going on overhead while I was recording the tutorial - so rather than explaining things as I went along (complete with the sound of the Red Arrows flying past my front window) I’ve added the instructions as a voice-over. Maybe you prefer it? Let me know!
Thanks for visiting,
