My grandmother just turned 90 and we wanted to celebrate her in a very special way! I was inspired by a favorite find from years ago, a die cut “fandex” illustrating the first ladies of our nation. It made me think how my grandma is OUR first lady, and although she is not famous, she is every bit as fabulous. So, as her biggest “fans” (pardon the pun, had to say it…), we decided to create “face fans” from favorite photos of her past and present. We scanned old photos as large as possible so the printed files could be “life size”, then cut out each face and taped them to large tongue depressers (popsicle sticks would be fine too.) She was so surprised and delighted and the kiddos had a blast with the idea! I made a few sets of the fans so people could take them home as party favors….now, what will we do for her 100th birthday?? Hoping Willard Scott will be able to attend! ha!
