Rosette Cocktail Fan

Hello gang! The sun was shining today….just what I ordered! It inspired me to make my (….and Starbucks’) famous Passion Tea Lemonade, after repairing the backyard from yet another doggie escape. I wanted to garnish this fabulous drink with something special, so here’s what I came up with: Rosette Cocktail Fan!

Here’s what you need:

  • Decorative paper 12″x12″
  • Barbeque Bamboo Skewers
  • Scoring Table
  • Hot glue gun
  • Letter stamps and ink

Okay, let’s get started:

Step 1: Find some fun paper prints and cut into 2″x12″ strips. You will need two strips of paper per rosette.

Step 2: Score each paper strip every 1/2″ and then fold “accordian style” as shown above. I have never used the scoring table before and it doesn’t take much effort to form a embossed scoring line, so easy on it 🙂

Step 3: Take each folded strip and curve into a semi-circle. Secure the halves together with staples and/or a glue gun. Complete rosette by administering a drop of hot glue in the middle of the fan….you will need to hold until it dries (<1 min) otherwise you will end up with an umbrella instead of a fan!

Step 4: Using a small circular tab (~2″ in diameter) personalize by stamping on an initial or image. Secure with hot glue. Fasten bamboo skewer with hot glue and TADA!

This turned out better than I thought, isn’t it adorable!? What a great idea to spice up your next cocktail party or even to use as a wedding favor to complement that signature cocktail.

Whatever use you find for this cute little project, I’m sure you will appreciate having this rosette cocktail fan along with your drink to cool you off on a hot summer day 🙂

Thanks for stopping!
