A vintage fan

Good evening everyone!

Another crafty night as I was bored so decided to have some fun.

I made this fan by making one template of one piece of the fan and duplicating it on card a few times. Cutting each one then I distressed the card using aged photo ink. I had some gorgeous gold peel offs which have been around in my stash for some time now so randomly placed them around the fan. The red lace is brand new and only got delivered yesterday, I distressed it using a black ink and cut to size and stuck to each piece.

I pierced two holes in the centre of each fan piece and weaves some organza ribbon through each hold to hold the fan together. Once I had done that I held the fan at the bottom so all of the pieces were in the same place, pierced another hold and inserted a heart brad which made it extra sturdy.

I finished by embellishing it with silver netting material, bows , flower buds and butterfly peel offs.

A nice change to a card. Hope you like.

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
