Summer is almost here! Today I want to share this summer craft idea with you so you can fan away the summer heat! This is a very fun and easy project to make, you can even create this with your toddlers at home. My boy and girl both liked this fan and my son even think it's so cool that he asked me to make one for my husband too!
The pop tone card stocks are absolutely suitable for making these Rosetta fans, perfect thickness and the color is irresistible. Don't you just love those lime green and lemon yellow? Oh, and the name for the color is so cute too, Berrylicious for the blue card stock. Yum!
How are the few easy steps to make this:
Step 1: Prepare three 8x10 card stocks from CutCardStock (this makes one fan), I used pop tone card stocks (Limeanade, Lemon Drop, and Berrylicious).
Step 2: Use a border punch of your choice, punch around the longer side of your card stocks
Step 3: Align punched card stocks horizontally on the score board and score card stock at 1" interval.
Step 4: Fold scored card stock in half, you should now have three folded card stocks as shown below.
Step 5: Adhere all three card stocks from Step 4 above together (edge to edge), leave an opening for the fan holder.
Step 6: Adhere the holder (if you don't have any craft stick available, you can replace it with chopsticks - lucky I didn't just throw them away everytime we got an extra pair from take out! LOL). Make sure you don't separate the chopsticks. Use double-sided tape to do this, it works great. If necessary, apply some glue gun - this will make the fan really sturdy.
Here is the end result...so "cool"..... :)
