Christmas fans

Having flipped through an old copy of ‘Better Homes and gardens’ in my dentists waiting room, I came across some cool ideas for Christmas decorations using paper. I started the process but soon realized this was going to take a while to get a really good bunch together to hang on the wall and trees so I’ll come back to it another time!

What you’ll need

Different scrapbooking papers (3 of the same pattern to make one large)
Stapler
String to hang them

Easy!

Concertina the paper and fold in half securing with a staple

Join 3 up together with staples to form a large fan

For a smaller fan cut in half. Poke a hole at the top and thread some glittery string for christmas decorations or glue smaller ones to larger ones to make for a wall display.

  1. In this last capacity, the easiest method is to simply punch a small hole in the dime and tie it with a red thread around one s ankle.
