Easy To Make Romantic Valentines Fans

These fans were crafted out of excess wallpaper, craft sticks, craft pearls, glue, heart frame inserts, and ribbons.  The backs also are covered with the paper and glued to a card stock heart insert from a picture frame (used for the Romantic Valentines Invitations on a previous blog post.)

I don't know about you, but I am often in need of a fan these days!  My good friend Dorothy always carries one in her purse.  It is collapsible!  This one will be hard to put in one's purse without damaging it.  I'm sure I will be using mine often in the future.  

These were given as party favors at our Valentines Tea.  It added such a colorful visual impact to the Tea table.  We briefly discussed how we could follow the apostle Paul's encouragement in 2 Timothy 1:6 to "fan into flame the gift of God that is in us".  Dorothy was my inspiration for this gift.

We were also given a little fork memento to remind us that "the best is yet to come", because when you are at a dinner and your hostess says "keep your fork" dessert soon follows!  We were asked to share what we are looking forward to when we get to heaven.  

May you always use the gifts God has given you to encourage and help the people God places in your life, no matter what it is like providing a fan, an encouraging word or sharing a talent.  Surely the BEST is yet to come.

 Have a DELIGHTFUL Valentines Celebration.
