Paddle fans are perfect as a souvenir or favor for a summer wedding. They look pretty and will help you to keep cool. I used the Affection dies to cut the layers for my fan and in between  I have sandwiched a wooden handle - which started life as a tongue depressor!  (I bought a packet on Ebay) . I painted the wooden handle with one coat of white paint and then sanded it to distress it.

BTW, Jared and Genna are purely fictional - they are the first names that came into my head when I was making the fan ! But thankyou Nigel May for hoping they were having a lovely honeymoon! ;-)

Catch Jodie on Create and Craft TV today at 5, 7 and 9pm.

Hope you get some sunshine today - the forecast for here is not great .
