Victorian Fan in Pinks

You may have seen other fans we have made like this one I am featuring today.  It is a scroll saw Victorian fan that Bill cut from thin aspen wood.  I did the embellishing with ribbons, fabric flowers, painting the Hummingbirds and bead work.  I just love these fans as they are so elegant and look beautiful on the wall of any room.  This one is for sale in my Etsy Shoppe and it would make a wonderful gift.  Link is in the sidebar.

I am joining Beverly at "Pink Saturday" with this post.  If you love Pink, you will have a ball visiting all the entries for this Pink Saturday, come on and join in!  

Here is a how to that I made by accident! Ha!
I was trying to make a snow flake that I had seen on some one's blog but the directions were not clear.  So while experimenting, I made the cutest Christmas tree that I will use on top of gifts or for a banner.  Have not decided if I should put glitter on it or just use different color papers in red green and gold.
First I cut a little square of paper.
I folded it in half and cut slits from the folded side towards the edges.  Then I turned it around and cut slits between the ones I had just cut from the straight edge.
I cut the edge point off at one end to make the pot for the tree and then I opened the paper up and pulled from each end.  And this is what happened!
I love it!  If you pull it out more , it will become dimensional.  These would look so cute in colors on a ribbon tied to a gift!
Happy crafting and come again!  Happy Thanksgiving  coming up Thursday -- Already!
My Krafty heart to yours...
