Cover-weight paper (8 1/2 by 11 inches)
Leave half the sheets of paper whole and cut the other half into 6-by-5-inch pieces.
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.
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.
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.
