Summer's End Tag and Sleeve

Click the lower right corner of the imge to download my old paper fan.

I've had this old paper fan for some time. I would run across it from time to time and think to myself, " this is so pretty".
It was tattered and torn but after I restored it, I loved it even more.
This morning I took the children, gave them a touch of color..........
a tag and sleeve were created........enjoy !
