How to DIY A Decorative Victorian Fan by Janet

How to DIY A Decorative Victorian Fan by Janet | Rinea
This is Janet from Try it - Like it - Create it, and I am sharing a tutorial for decorating a Victorian fan.
This month the design team here at Rinea is partnering with Creative Embellishments for our projects.

The fan uses pieces mainly from Rinea, Creative Embellishments, and Little Birdie.
glueing the foiled paper
coating the fan
I began by coating each piece of the Victorian fan with the gold Rinea foiled paper in starstruck. I trimmed them out using an X-Acto knife and thankfully a regular hole punch fit the hole perfectly and I punched each one out.
fan together
Then I layered them into an open fan shape and glued them together.
I created a tassel by wrapping a variety of color-coordinating materials around my fingers - thread, cord, ribbon... and attached it to the fan through the open hole.
floral pieces
I began layering the floral pieces onto the fan and adhering them with hot glue until finished. The only thing left to do is add a hanging mechanism to the back. (a soda can tab works well for this)
