Japanese Fan Card

Here is a cool Japanese fan card I promised to show you. Here it is all packaged up as it was bought.
Below is an up-close view of the little add-on sticker on the front. I thought it was a nice touch and was impressed that this little detail was die cut into a fan shape too.
Here it is out of the cello sleeve. There's an envelope and a little card with a slit that holds the fan in place.
When you remove the fan from the holder card, you can flip it over and write a message on the back.
Here's how it looks when you open the card and flatten it out on the table. It works like a pop-up book. I love all the gold foil detail!
It comes with string attached for hanging.
Here's another view of it when it is closed again.
And finally, here's a view from the front of it when the card is only opened a little bit.Thanks for checking out this little card with me! I hope it inspires you in some small way as it did me.
