Now, on to my project. I found this idea on the Martha Stewart website. I thought they were cute Halloween decorations. I decided to make a cat and a pumpkin.
Step #1 ~ Accordian fold an 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper in 1/2 or 3/4 inch folds. I used my Martha Stewart score board to make equal scores at 1/2 inch for the pumpkin and 3/4 inch for the cat.
Step #2 ~ I used my bone folder to make my folds sharp and to bend my folded paper in half to form a fan.
Step #3 ~ You will do this folding to two pieces of paper, but then I did mine a little bit different than the directions on the website. I put the two pieces together by tying them with thread through the center and using Red Line Craft tape to form a circle. See below.
Step #4 ~ Then I just used scraps of paper to cut out the facial features for each decoration. Here is the finished pumpkin.
And here is the finished cat.
