Instructions for our Paper Fan Craft

Craft Supplies:

  • Piece of Paper (sturdier will last longer than regular construction paper)
  • Markers or Crayons
  • Tape

Step #1:

Decorate your piece of paper in your desired design. For this you can use a pencil to draw it out and color them in with crayons, pencil crayons or markers.

If it is for a special holiday, decorate for each holiday and have one for every occasion.

Step #2:

Start at one end of the paper. Fold a one inch crease, and follow that by another one inch crease in the opposite direction. Repeat this until the entire paper is folded.

Step #3:

Take one end of the folded paper and pinch it together. This will leave the other end open. Just fan out this end.

Step #4:

Tape the pinched end together to hold together your fan. You can also just staple this section or tie a string around it - whichever you have available.

Why not create one for everyone in the family - in all colors, and designs. Make one for each occasion.
