DIY: Wrap Paper Fans

DIY Wrap Paper FansI have recently created some paper fans in pastel colours with wrapping paper for the talented photographer of Gretel Photography for an Easer themed photo-shooting backdrop with little kids.

I have recently shared a DIY tutorial on how to create paper fans with tissue paper here however this time I tried to create the same paper fans with wrapping paper and I was very happy with the results. Not only wrapping paper is thicker so it creates a better structure, but you also have more choices on patters and colours.

So in case you would like to try to create some paper fans on your own, here is a step by step guide to DIY. I hope you like it.
