Making Hand-Held Fans?

I would like to make round hand fans to cover with fabric. I'm having a hard time finding the right sizes, ex. 9, 10, 11, or or 12 inch round cardboard cutouts with or without handles. I can purchase those separately and attach them myself. Has anyone ever ordered round cardstock ?

The only things I can think of that are precut and round, are the card stock that bakers use under cakes. If you have a restaurant supply store near you, you may find these available. A thinner cardboard round is the tops that are put on top of tin pans used for carry out food. Also, available at a restaurant supply store. For handles, I suggest tongue depressors that are available online from a manufacturer in Maine, Solon, Inc.

I agree with jobellecollie. Both can be purchased at a good craft store.

Use any card stock and use an up-side-down bowl to round off the corners. After you get one done, you can use that one for a pattern to make the rest.


I made 50 fans this past spring for my church and made my own template .
