Steampunk Style Fan Invitation/Ornament

Today's post is all about gears and bolts and Victorian style mixed together with a fan's design.
I've taken the previously shown holiday fan and changed out its shape, narrowing it so that more sections may be joined together, creating a variety of possibilities for you.
I've also left the message frames blank, so that you can add your own hand lettering or rubber stamped letters, expressing your own choice of sentiment, such as "Happy Birthday" or "It's a Tea Party!" or, as illustrated below, "Steampunk Tea Party," even.
This has been made to accompany a brand new set of travels for our Steam Tea Travels sister blog. This time, we are heading for Cairo, Egypt where adventures abound!
Each sheet contains 18 fan sections, more than enough to create a variety of expressions.
I suppose you could also take your original down to your local copy center or extension and enlarge this one. And, as it was produced at 300dpi, it should look okay, provided you don't go overboard with the enlarging.  
There is a lot of fussy cutting involved in this project, I know, but it will have a lot of character at the end for all the work involved.
But. If you would rather keep it stylish and simpler, you could always simply cut the base gear bits away as you go, making a refined circle.
I'd like to recommend using card stock for this project, along with a fetching grommet for the holes, or a bit of thin metallic braid. A bit of metallic super fine glitter might also go over well with your guests.
The 4:00 teatime could also be covered over with a different clock face with hands set for a different time (before you head for your copy center might be best here), but I'm awfully fond of my regular teatime, and thought it would be fun to include the teatime clock in this design.
No matter where we may roam during our Steam Tea Travels, for example, there is always time for a cup of tea at around 4:00 in the afternoon (or, 16:00 for our friends in the EU).  :)
I do hope you'll enjoy the entire Steampunk Theme Party product line, which you may find more items for in the PPSPartyGear™ category.

Great steampunk accessories! I really liked what you did to Mona Lisa on G+ but I couldn't comment as I'm not part of the community. I used to do digital scrapbooking before taking up mixed media and sometimes I miss the digital play but my heart is with paint and messy fingers these days! It was a whole lot easier to keep my desk tidy though!

Plush Possum Studio said...

Hi Zsuzsa!
Thank you for your kind words about my old digital Mona makeover! I know what you mean about "messy fingers." I hope to soon be able to show my latest mess at Let's Play.
As for G+, if you've got a gmail account, there should be no problem. Same password applies for G+ as for gmail and Blogger. In fact, if I'm signed into Gmail, everything else seems to work just fine, one password sign in takes care of it all, usually.
I LOVED your work on your pear!!!!! Well done!!!!
