This whole craft is about folding paper to make a fan and then putting them together to form a large circle.
Here is how to make these pretties!
Did you ever fold paper to make a fan? This is very similar to that. In fact, it's the same - only put 2 of the fans back to back to make a whole round rosette and glue together. You'll see... it's easy.
Take a piece of scrapbook paper and fold it back and forth. Make 2 of these.
Cut this in half.
Attach all the pieces together to form a long folded rectangle using double sided clear tape.
Tape the ends together also to form a big folded circle.
Lay it out flat.
Put some hot glue in the center to hold the rosette together... done.
I considered putting a paper heart in the center but it seemed like it might be too much.
Now, I can hear my mother saying (she hasn't seen them yet), "What are you going to DO with them?" As if making them is not enough. They have to have a function, too. Well, that is a future post, my lovelies...
Gosh, I love these things. They came out so cute!!
Best winter wishes and stay warm, everyone!
