Easy Rosettes made from a Chinese fan!
These fans are available at most Chinese restaurants. They are usually very inexpensive and have wonderful colors and designs. The paper is already folded!
Just think...no score board, rulers, bone folders, sore fingers!
I pulled the edges of the paper away from the plastic holder. Then cut the folded paper away from the holder at the base.
The edges were trimmed to create a straight fold on each side.
The folded paper can then be cut into the desired length. I used regular sissors to cut through the paper. The paper is very soft and can be easily molded back into shape.
The ends are glued together and allowed to dry. I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.
These rosettes form so easily! It was like they couldn't wait to be a rosette!
These rosettes are staying in place without any type of glue!
They are simply laying on the table! Isn't that wonderful!
This card was made using one of the rosettes in the previous picture.
This rosette was the first rosette I made using a Chinese fan. I purchased the little metal fan at the same restaurant. I found the Chinese character on the internet and colored a bird that I had in my stash to match the bird on the fan.
The completed card!
I plan to take this to the restaurant where I bought the fans!
I told the owner I would bring her one of the cards that I made using the fans.
Have a beautiful day!
