1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES / Flower Fan-tastic Hand Held Fan on: September 04, 2009 07:15:54 PM
This is my first entry and I am a bit of a noob to the group.  I have totally enjoyed the other entries - what a wonderful group of ideas and creative people you all are! 

I was at a football game last week and really wanted a fan to move the air and the gnats.  I searched and searched and did not find anything.  I remember having the collapsible kind when I was younger - and sadly my small town doesn't have any!  So I made my own for a few bucks!

Materials: 1- Hair pick
1 - Calendar
1 - few pages of craft, card stock or scrap book paper
double sided tape
embroidery floss or yarn

Cut out fan shapes from calendar pictures and craft paper and stick together with tape. Punch holes around the edges and crochet with floss. **Optional: tassels and crocheted cord for decoration.  I used a wax seal and embossed my initial on the handle too. Wink

Weave fan into the tines of pick and wrap cord around handle - done!

Make several blade styles for any occasion and for friends.
Stay fashionably cool on hot days.
