This is how it was done. I used a template to cut the white pieces out of white gift boxes. Then I used an end of wallpaper left over from my living room to put the front piece (green piece) on. I didn't dip the wallpaper in water, but just dampened it. I used a soft cloth and ran it over the back of the wallpaper, then stuck it fast to the white stock paper.
When it was dry (it didn't take long, maybe 15 minutes) I added some letters at the top of the fan. I'm not sure if you can tell, but it spells "Mother." I had punched holes with a paper punch near the bottom of the fan and then slid a green ribbon through it and tied it. I added buttons on the two end fan pieces and a fairy sticker. When the fan is folded, the button and fairy will be on the front.
It looks nice, but I'm going to try doing others. This is something that the boys and I could do for their mother for Easter or Mother's Day. It was just a crafty night and practice makes perfect. I just had a desire to create.
In other news, my daughter, Michelle, was able to go into work today. She was working 3 pm to 9 pm, so I picked the boys up from school. Brandon is a bit upset that Mom will be having surgery the day his class trip begins. He's chosen not to go, but is really disappointed. The timing on this was not great, but there's a reason for everything. Please keep Brandon in your prayers. He's having a bit of a rough time right now. He will be with me the day his Mom has her surgery.
Not much other news here today. It rained off and on all day and is raining again now. We are to have ice and snow overnight. The wacky weather continues. By next Monday we are to be in a frigid spell again. Spring, oh Spring, where are you?
Take care everyone and thanks to all my friends and readers for alway taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
Do a kind deed today. Kindness brings hope. ~Blessings, Mary~
