As I browsed the Inspiration Challenge website for this week "Wedding Bells", I came across these lovely blue "DIY Accordion Paper Hand Fans." GASP!! Do you know I'm obsessed with accordion-fold, fan-fold everything?? I AM. Obsessed. Period. The end, no further explanation can make it clearer!! LOL!!!
I loved the blue and white of the inspiration piece, but I "had" to embellish and punch my final product. Even though it doesn't look like it, it was the Hand Fan item that inspired my creation! (See, my "creation" is also blue and white and it's a fan fold thing!)
But -- I have no idea what this thing is exactly that I made. It's not a card. It's not a fan. It is just inspired. Don't judge. :) I love making these fan things. What can I say?
I have posted step by step pics on my blog! if you're interested and have any ideas what I could use these for or what they might be! LOL!! I hope you'll visit and let me know your ideas!!
Thanks for looking!

It's GORGEOUS, Anne! I love it and it blows the inspiration piece right out of the water! You could attach a thin ribbon behind it and turn this into an ornament. My daughter hangs lightweight "pretties" on her kitchen cabinet knobs and other places like that, i.e. drawer knobs, door handles, etc. I'd want to look at this piece often, so that's what I'd do with it - hang it from a knob. Going to go check out how you did it right now. I, too, love the accordion-folded things and this is just BEAUTIFUL!
