I downloaded some digital papers on JessicaSprague.com to use for this fan. Now I love the beach, I love tropical things so I wanted something "beachy" and I have a chair in my craft room that was my inspiration. It was upholstered in fabric that is called "cabana village" so I played off that fabric for my selection of digital papers. I will show a pic of the chair too.
I wanted to mix it up so chose to do alternate patterns on the blades. I think that makes it fun. It printed so nice! I was planning on using my imagine and doing a paisley because I LOVE PAISLEY but my imagine pattern cart I chose wasn't going to work because it wasn't letting me select the 8.5 x 11 paper size! UGGGGHHH. It only seems to want to do 12 x 12 unless I was just too stupid to figure it out.
Now watch it I know what you are thinking....be nice though ok. My sweet hubby had already taken down the fan blades while I was at work and washed them and got them ready for me to work on when i got home. He is such the keeper....did I tell you all he made me fudge the other day! YES he knows the key to this fat ladies heart. F-U-D-G-E...sing it like the village people sings YMCA its quite catchy!
Ok on to the crafty part. The great thing about Square 1 is that if you don't get it on right the first time just pull it off (effortlessly) and try it again and again!! I love that. And we are renting because we relocated from Florida (and ps I am heading back soon)....cause did I tell you it is cold up here in the north and my old body has decided it is not liking it anymore! So I can remove easily all the goodies I have made for the house with this product!

Now take the time to visit Square 1 Masterpiece and get you some awesome products to play with. They have iron on fabric, printable fabric and the colored sheets again that are "like" a vinyl product but so much better as they are SAFE and removable/repositionable!!
