Romance Fans

Paper Whimsy group is creating Romance Fans for a swap. We signed up 5 to a group and are makign 6 blades each. When the blades are done, we mail one to each of our partners and two to one "lead" person. Each of us will create our own fan with one of our own blades plus the four others we receive. The "lead" person, in this case Patricia Schweitzer, will make an extra fan out of the extra blades and donate to PW for a charity auction to be held down the road. Other members in the group are Anne Hartman, Gina Wise and Joan Lawrence...all talented ladies!


Here are three of the blades I made, the other 3 are fairly similar. I have seen two of the other artist blades and they are beautiful! I can't wait to get them all and make one beautiful ROMANCE fan! LOL

We will punch a hole at the base of the blades and tie them together with ribbons & fibers. We can also put a ribbon across the back to keep them lined up.
