Start with two pieces of cardstock, each 6" x 12". Fringe 5.5" down the entire length of the first piece; fringe halfway down the length of the second piece.
With the non-fringe edge running up and down, fold each fringe at an angle so that they all point downward, alternating the fringe to go left or right.
Aline the fully-fringed piece above the half-fringed piece and attach the pieces together with double-stick tape. You may need to trim the last two leaflets on the fully fringed piece.
Using scissors, cut off the unfringed cardstock from the bottom piece to create a stem.
Trim the outer edges of the leaves to create a palm-leaf shape (gradually shorter pieces at the top and bottom).
