Step 2

Fold along the lines and keep your glue stick on standby.

Glue one of the sides down to the folded bottom flap (the 1cm flap) then glue the second side on top of it.

Step 3

Now the fun begins!

You can be as creative as you like.

I placed washi tape along the top of the envelope flap and stuck a printed sticky note on the front.

I repeated the same steps again using printed paper.

Step 2

Glue or staple all the ends attaching all three concertinas together. Repeat this step to create as many as you need. I needed 10 for the words Eid Mubarak.

Cut out circle shapes and write the individual letters on each circle. I used bigger circles for ‘Eid’ and smaller circles for ‘Mubarak’. Stick your circles onto the fans using double sided tape. Display your fans in your desired layout and keep in place using blue tac.
