The summer heat can be unbearable. Why not cool down with a beautiful accessory you've made yourself? Creating hand fans is easy with these crafty apps.
Global warming is making us look for new ways to cool down. But what about something old - something tried and tested? Hand fans are the way to go. They can also be an amazing project if you are in the mood for creating your own. The perfect accessory is almost as old as human civilization - first appearing in Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt. The currently most recognizable form - the folding fan - hailed from China and was based on the structure of the wing of a bat. If you want to figure out how to make them, you should definitely look for an online course, get step-by-step instructions, and focus on obtaining some practical skills.
Still, your creativity will only take you so far. Don't forget that you won't achieve much with regular paper or uneven sticks. Yes, materials definitely make a huge difference. Top-quality bamboo and silk are the best options. Get the best stuff you can afford. This will enable you to create something that will be not only beautiful but also durable. Fans are, after all, fragile by their very nature, so making sure yours lasts as long as possible will be important. Don't take any chances.
If, at first, you fail - don't give up. Making fans is an ancient craft that, in old Japan and China, took years to master. With time, you will definitely get better. So much better, in fact, that you may even be able to sell your work and make a profit. Seriously, you'd be surprised how many people are willing to pay for beautiful yet practical creations. Turning your hobby into a profitable business is a perfectly realistic possibility. You don't even have to set up a shop - you can sell online with Shopify.
