steps

  1. Leave half the sheets of paper whole and cut the other half into 6-by-5-inch pieces.

  2. Score whole sheets of 8 1/2-by-11-inch papers lengthwise every ½ inch and then fold them accordion style. Repeat with the smaller pieces of paper.


  3. Cut small strips of paper about 1 inch by ½ inch. Hold one end of a folded sheet closed to create a fan shape, pinching tightly to keep all the folds together. Glue the small strip of paper over the bottom edges to secure.


  4. Glue the fans together by overlapping the outermost ½-inch section of each fan and alternate sizes of fans. You will also need to alternate the directions of the fans.
