Paper crafts: Paper Fan Banner Tutorial

Here’s how to make it!

Step 1: Take a piece of scrap-booking paper and cut it in half.



Step 2: Fold each paper accordion style
Step 3: Fold each piece of paper in half at the middle


Step 4: Apply double-sided tape to one of the edges of folded paper, and stick the two together.



Step 5: Using a matching color thread, tie a not around the middle of the fan so it keeps its gathered look.



Step 6: Spread the fan out and tape the remaining side together.



Tada!  A cute little paper fan thing. I don’t really know what they are called.


Step 7: Punch a hole through the back end of the fan and knot a piece of ribbon to it.
Step 8: Tie this ribbon onto another ribbon, and repeat for as many other paper fans you would like, varying their length hanging from the ribbon.




Recommendation: Tie the ribbons onto the base ribbon AFTER you have hung the base ribbon up (I just knotted it onto some command strip hooks) The ribbon will sag some and will change the length for your hanging ribbons. I still really need to shorten my last pink one so it is more symmetrical!
