Craft Project: Blue Fairy Fan

I used the Fan Card template from Mirkwood Designs, with a few tweaks, to make this pretty fan for my friend Teejay's birthday last year. It was a little fussy to make but it turned out quite well. I found the tassel at Hobby Lobby where they sell the drapery trims. I'm pretty sure that I also bought the ribbon to connect the blades there as well. It's been a while since I made this so I don't remember exactly how I assembled the fan but I seem to recall that I did have to make some adjustments to the instructions on the Mirkwood site.

Here are the graphics that I made for the fronts and backs of the fan blades:

I had a sparkly gold gift card box that I'd saved from Christmas and it was the perfect size for wrapping the fan. I made this matching gift card to go on top of the box: 

This is how I wrapped the fan:
