Hello friends! Happy Sunday!
Today I have something a little different for you... a paper fan that yes, actually closes up! I wanted to play along this week with the Shining the Light Challenge over on the ODBD Blog to help celebrate Our Daily Bread designs's 4th Anniversary, coming up next Sat! The challenge is to use aqua or topaz (the birth stone for March) and an ODBD Scripture, quote or sentiment. I also played along with the Inspiration Challenge yesterday at SCS, which was all about fans! So I made my own paper fan.
I hand cut my pattern from Papertrey cs and stamped the flourish and tag from Our Daily Bread designs Flourished Verses and also the small flower from ODBD's Sing to the Lord, using Baja Breeze ink (SU!). I then embossed each panel with a Cuttlebug folder and punched a hole in the bottom of each fan panel. I ran gold cord through the hole and then attached thin ribbon on the back at the edge of each panel so it would fold flat. I tied on a May Arts silk bow and added a tag from the same Flourished Verses set. I stamped a few extra flowers and cut them out, adding them for dimention but in ways that they don't interfere with the folding of the fan, and tied in a string of pearls as well. This could be a stand along card, gift or even would look nice in a shadowbox with a few more treasures added! Hope you enjoyed my project!
