Summer is here, which means the kids are home more often.  Which also means, we need more activities to keep them occupied.

This is where these fruit shaped hand fans come into play.  They’re kid friendly, require minimal supplies, and they’ll be of good use at our next outdoor event!  


Supplies Needed:  

     

     paper and craft sticks for fruit fans

     

    We’re going to start by opening Cricut Design Space and locating the fruit files. If you're using another machine, just search the files for the names of the fruits you want to make.


    Cricut Design Space files for Paper Fruit Fans


    File Names:

    • Red Apple (#M263A1238)
    • Lemon (#M263A11DA)
    • Orange (#M263A11C0)
    • Blue Berry (#M263A115D)

    Now that you have your files, add them to your canvas and resize them. I sized the apple 6.7 inches in width, the lemon 7.5 in height, the orange 7 in in height, and the blueberry 8.9 in width.   


    Each fruit has two shades of each color but I cut them on the same color card stock to give them some depth. Before sending to cut, save the project. Always remember to save.

    Once they’re all cut, glue the layers together with a glue gun.

    After all the fruit has been assembled, add some glue on the craft sticks and pace the fruit on top.  When gluing the fruit, place the stem facing the stick.

    And there we have it, if you would like, you can add one layer on the back to cover the stick as well.
