Stay Cool This Summer: How To Make A Bamboo Fan!

An old saying goes that no fan can create a cool breeze unless it is soaked with the maker’s sweat.  And while some amazing bamboo fans can take almost 100 days to complete between picking the perfect bamboo pieces and hand painting intricate designs, there are easier methods to creating not-quite-so-spectacular-but-equally-effective hand-powered cooling systems.
Here’s what you need to make your bamboo fan:
  • 14 x 17 in. sheets of paper (pick fun colors or patterns!)
  • 11 12-inch long bamboo sticks
  • Sharpie/Marker
  • 2 inch headpin
  • Needle
  • Thread (not too thick but not too thin either)
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
Here’s how to make your bamboo fan:
  1. Start by creating the bones of the fan.  Mark the middle of the sticks (width wise) and one inch from the one end of each of the sticks (the same end please!).
  2. Use the needle to create holes through the marks on the middle of the bamboo sticks.
  3. Thread the sticks together through the newly-created holes in the middle.  Pull the bamboo together as if the fan were in a closed position.  (Hint:  If you wanted to decorate and/or paint the bones of the fan, now is the time to do so!)
  4. Thread the head pin back through the holes.  Using the needle nose pliers, twist the other end of the head pin just tight enough to keep the bones together but loose enough to allow for pivoting.  Trim any extra thread with scissors.
  5. Spread the paper out and set the bamboo bones evenly down on the paper.  Tape the bones to the paper.
  6. Mark the paper ½ inch above the top of the bones and 1 inch on each side.  Cut the bottom and top of the paper in an arc.  (If you wish, remove the bones carefully to paint or draw designs on the paper.)
  7. Glue the bones to the paper and let dry completely.
  8. To fold the fan, start on one end and begin folding by bringing the first bone to the second bone and folding the paper in.  Continue to fold in this manner and once done, trim any excess paper.

  2. The best part about these Female Escorts in Goa is that you can interact with them on any topic of your choice as well There is a wrong notion that one
    can hire the escort for themselves, but this is not the case as you can hire it for someone as well. A lot many times subordinates go on to hire it for
    the wellbeing of their bosses. The net result is that a long promotion that has been due for a long time has been achieved in such cases as well. Such
    is the beauty of the Goa female escort is that they are trained in such a way that the needs of the clients are taken care of.

  3. The Goa Model Escorts have gone on to maintain an aesthetic appeal and the reason why they go on to achieve this is that they need a consistent manner in
    whatever they look to achieve. If physical beauty is more appealing it does go on to add a level of personification and it does enhance the beauty level
    of an individual. In the modern day context escorts have gone on to be part of expensive beauty treatments at spa or saloons in order to maintain their
    looks as well. The main reason why they do is that they would need to look perfect and beautiful all the time because clients would lose interest in them.
    It needs to be understood that all the beauty treatments cannot be done at home and this is the reason why Goa celebrity escorts would need to go on to
    visit a parlour two or three times a week.

  4. Another interesting trend that is observed when you go on to avail the services of top notch Goa escort is that you get medical reports that is up to date.
    They are part of routine medical tests which does take into consideration the fact that the female escort is safe from any form of sexual disease. This
    tends to benefit the clients also in a lot of ways as they have no reservations to the fact that they are enjoying with a girl who is medically certified
    on all counts. This works out to be a benefit for both parties as well.
    In life what sometimes happens is that you tend to date a girl and spend all your money on her. You are thinking on the lines that she is your life partner
    and think of spending your life with Goa Independent Escort. But you are not aware of what life has in store for you. After a certain point of time you
    finally realize that you have been dating has gone on to cheat you and she is spending time with someone else. You are depressed and then think of ending
    your life. This is where an escort is going to help you.
