craft corner 3. Repeat Step 1 to the white sheet of paper. With the one half you will be using cut it lengthwise into 6 pieces. So total you have 3 red pieces 3 green pieces and 6 white pieces. 4. Glue a green piece of paper to each of the red pieces; so it looks like the green shell of the watermelon. It should be placed at the top of the red paper. Do this to each red piece of paper and make sure the width of green matches each sheet so when you connect them they match up. 5. Place a white sheet in between the red and green pieces. Make sure these match up. Place the other 3 white strips to the back of the fan, make sure these match up. 6. Draw your black seeds with a black marker. 7. Fold your pieces about 1 inch thick in a fan formation. Meaning: fold the inch on one side and flipping the paper over and repeating the process until you get to the end of the paper. 8. Start gluing the 3 pieces together. Make sure the front matches up and the back. Then fold them all together and wait for the glue to dry. 9. Glue your popsicle sticks half way on both sides. Place one of them on each side of the fan to create handles. That’s it! Tip: Make the lemon fan the same way but using alternate colors of the watermelon. Have fun! 37
