I have this thing about fans… The vintage ones! I needed one for a project I’m working on, but couldn’t find them anywhere so I made my own template for the Gazelle. Those of you who use this can e-mail me at 060.615249@telia.com and I’ll send you the template. Otherwise, you’ll have to use the .jpg-file below.

fantemplateI have made the parts approx 4″ (10 cm) high, and have used 8 or 9 parts for each fan. Cut them in patterned paper or cardstock to decorate yourself. I used plain white CS for mine, inked, stamped and embossed and this is what I came up with:


Put a brad through the hole to hold the parts together, and if you want you can thread a ribbon through the slits, like I did:


Thread ribbon up through slit no 1 on the part furthest back, down through slit no 2 and up through slit no 3 and continue through slit no 1 on the second part. Spread the fan as you like it to be when you have gone through all the parts, attach the ribbon ends on the back.



Products used: White CS, stamps from Pysselmyran and Autumn Leaves, Distress Inks and Embossing Powder from Ranger, Staz-On stamp pad. Ribbon from stash.

This is Kelly at age 7. I have used the Far East stack from DCWV – those papers are lovely! I also found a transparency border from Autumn Leaves that would go with it, the title is AC Thickers (my favorites!). The tag is first stamped (Daisy Bucket) and embossed with clear EP, then misted (MM) and covered with UTEE. The flowers have been dipped into melted UTEE, and somehow they got a bit hot so the edges are actually burned! The flower centers are Glue Dots Pop Dots which I dusted some Doodlebug Sugar Coating on. The nice UltraBig photo corners are wet embossed and made at Svartvik Paper. Here are a few close-ups:
