Stamped Paper Fans

Created By: Johnny Miller/Brown Bird Design


Embellish paper fans as favors for your next get-together. A fireworks pattern is particularly fitting for a Fourth of July bash.

Tip: Arrange fans in a basket or on a platter, and place on the dining table for a pretty, practical centerpiece. Or put a fan at each guest's place setting.



  1. Step 1

    Open a fan, and stamp in a random design or create a border along the top.

  2. Step 2

    Let ink dry.

    I have hand painted fans like these with a pearlescent finish graduating from a darker shade down to very pale at the bottom and then finished with branches of cherry blossom to give an oriental theme. I have also decorated others by gluing tiny punched out butterfly and flower shapes all over (separately). Bit tedious but effective nontheless.
