We've all made paper fans at one time or another, but who knew they could be so pretty?!?

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Layered Paper Fan
We're very fond of pretty paper in our house, so Madeleine chose two patterns that went together very nicely.

The third would be drawn by herself! She chose four colored pencils that matched the papers beautifully. (What a fun surprise to find that we had just the right colors!)

After she had finished designing and coloring the third, she decided which would be the main piece, and trimmed the others,

and arranged them all just so, until she was satisfied. She applied glue to the backs of the trimmed pieces,

and pasted them to the large sheet.

I made the first fold, at about 3/4 an inch, to show her how it was done. "I know how to do this, Mama!" she said, excitedly. "Here you go!" I said. This way...

and then we folded up the end. She put glue on both sides of the bottom,

and she wrapped a cute matching ribbon snugly around the bottom.

"I think it needs another one--a ribbon tied in a bow, too!" she urged. "Alright." Perfect.
