Belle Epoque Sisters Fan – Petrine Wiik Collection

Here is another romantic fan, with Petrine Wiik and her sisters:

Wings of Whimsy: Belle Epoque Sisters Fan  #vintage #ephemera #freebie #printable #fan

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Print the sheets onto matte photo paper (I use 170g paper) or cardstock
  2. Glue the sheets to thin cardboard, I use a cereal box and spray glue, let dry.
  3. Cut out the fan leaves.
  4. (Optional: ink the edges of each leaf for a more vintage look)
  5. Punch the holes, and arrange your fan to spell L’AMOUR, fasten the leaves together with a brad.
  6. Attach a piece of ribbon to the back according to my example to be able to open and close the fan (the white tape can be covered in something nicer, I just wanted to show you as clear as possible how I did it!).
  7. (Optional: embellish your fan with anything you fancy)
  8. TADAH: Belle Epoque Romantic Style 🙂

  1. Once again you´ve just made a wonderful piece of art out of some ordinary photos, and what an awesome way to dsplay some of these old pictures, so they´re not just hidden at the bottom of a drawer somewhere. I love this idea, and also just got a complete different idea from this too, I think, I might have to try here too very soon, so thanks a lot for that as well.
    Have a wonderful week-end and lots of fun with your lovely girls.

    1. I’m very curious about your idea Hunny! I guess you were probably not able to create much during your never-ending flu, but maybe you are finally feeling up to taking some old pictures to another level…lol! xoxoxo
