September Archi-scraps challenge - rolled paper

Hi there.

It's time to have a bit of fun with paper. Archi-scraps challenge is to used rolled paper on your paper project. Below is the inspiration pic.

I decided to make a card. I came up with the idea of creating a fan.

I got a book out from the library and it had a pattern in it for rolled paper tubes, but I downscaled the size to suit my project.

I chose some pretty paper from a Daphne's Diary magazine.  I didn't want it to be thick as cardstock so that it was easier to roll.

I chose some patterned paper for the base of the fan that matched the rolled paper tubes and added a strip of reddish pink for the bottom. I bought some twine from Kmart, their Anko brand to finish off.

I used pink cardstock for the background to make the blue of the fan pop.

The sentiment reads Have a FANtastic birthday. A cute pun I think.

Sometimes I quite like to decorate the inside. It's a nice surprise, plus the card is quite big so that would be a lot of room to write otherwise.
