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.

Brr… Det är kallt ute… Vilken tur att jag har härliga strandbilder att värma mig med!

Lorelai tyckte om havet. Det var jättehärligt på stranden den här dagen.

Papperet kommer från Best Creations, stickers från Bo Bunny och Jolee’s, bokstäverna från Sizzix Wingo Zingo och så litet pärlfloss, band och paper frills (Doodlebug). Journalingmarkeringen är gjord med hjälp av en template från Crafter’s Workshop, datumstämpeln kommer från Inkido.

I was going to make some pillow boxes as treat boxes for Kelly’s birthday party, and found out my template made too small boxes! So I had to redo it, but found out it was quite easy to make them without templates as soon as I got the hang of it!

1. You will need
8 1/2″x11″ paper
Embossing tool or bone folder
Circle shape (I used Fiskars template)
Double sided tape or glue

2. Score one mark at about 1/2″ from the right side, and one score on the half of the leftover area. I made mine at 10 cm and 20 cm from the left side, as I only have a ruler for centimeters!

3. Fold along the scored lines.

4. Mark the circled shape as shown on the photo, on both sides

5. Cut along the lines

6. Mark another circled line using embossing tool or bone folder, that touches the ends like in the photo

7. Embellish the box as you like, then glue/tape together along the narrow folded piece, and fold in the ends.
