Parchment Fan

This fan was a labour of love as it did take quite a time to make all fourteen ribs of the fan but it was well worth it. 

It is  white work with cutting and a little gold tinta ink to make the embossing on the ribs stand out more. 

The ribs were joined with some thin gold metallic ribbon and a tassle at the end to hold it all together.

The fan does fold in on itself but the parchment is not strong enough to enable it to be used as a fan. 

It is purely for decoration and I am going to mount it on some black card and frame it. 

This is one project that will not be finding a home elsewhere.

  1. Aww Elaine this is stunning the gold tinta is very effective, I'm not surprised your keeping it all that hard work, it will look gorgeous framed.
