For this project you will need Scrapbook pages in patriotic colors. You start by cutting the paper in half. Take one half and start at the widths end, and fold under and fold back over like you’re making a fan.

Then you fold it in half again, and press down on the folded part really hard with your fingers to strengthen that fold. Be sure the ends line up with each other and glue the ends together. You can use Aleenes tacky glue or hot glue.
Now take the two ends and bring together and glue…it will look like this:

This one is bigger. What I did was cut the blue scrap paper in half again, make the folds on both, then glue them together. You glue them just in the middle, making a bigger fan. Then you do the same with a contrasting paper. Then you glue the blue to the red on both sides.then I added glitter
