Who would have thought I had any Asian creations in me, but that is the beauty of challenges, they cause us to think outside our comfort zone and come up with new and fresh creations.
I studied Juliet Arright's tutorial on the Dahlia Fold and this is the fan that came into being. This is the year of the Rabbit and I found this free paper on a site that I was Googleing Chinese fans and sadly I did not write it down and then I couldn't find it again. It was not double sided so I glued it to a gold circle and then folded, so my fold doesn't lay as flat as the tutorial, but that's o.k. because I wanted those cute little rabbits to show a little. Not to bad for a first go.
The little red flowers at the corners started out as a blob at one corner so I quickly pulled some petals around with the end of a needle while the ink was still wet and I think they added a nice little touch. I tell you this to let you know that you can sometimes save small disasters and turn them to your advantage.
