Okay, you have the invitations, so now it’s time for the next step: decorations. If you’re tired of the same old crepe paper, streamers and balloons, try mixing it up and doing something a little different.
These little paper fans are easy-to-make decorations that you can hang
from the ceiling or scatter on a tabletop. All you need to do is take
a strip of Just Chillin’ paper (if you want to continue with that
theme) and make accordion folds all the way down. When your folds are
complete, staple the middle of your paper. Unfold the edges and staple
them together to create a paper fan. If you’re feeling creative, you
can add a tag or sticker to the center of your fan.
*Tip: keep in mind that thick paper and small folds will be difficult to staple.
