This is a fan I designed for Alpha Stamps. I started with triangular shaped blades. The front paper is Love Letters scrapbook paper. Sandwiched between the front and back decorative paper is a thin piece of chipboard.After assembling each blade I inked the edges. Next, I added Baroque Dresden borders to the ends of each blade (front and back). I decorated the blades with images of Marie from three different collage sheets. The images are glued to paper from the Timeless paper pad and framed with small Dresden oval frames. I added images of flowers and more gold German scrap. The blades are secured with a brad to which I added ribbon and beading. I glued a piece of filigree to the brad.
I attached ribbon along the back of the blades to act as a stop to keep the blades from opening too far. I glued a piece of paper at the points on the blade where I glued the ribbon to the blade.
The ribbon folds between the blades when the fan is closed.
