Of course we can expect the Fourth to be HOT, so these patriotic paper fans are a must for your family gathering. Luckily they are also super easy to make using my free printable fan template. To make the fans, just need out the square and glue onto tongue depressors. You could also use a punch to round the corners to give them a more finished look.
