Ginger Snap Creations - Random Redhead Challenge - GC99 - Fans

This is for Challenge GC99 - Fans.
When this challenge was announced, I had to laugh! I had utilized fans in two previous Ginger Snap Challenges! Who knew?  So I had to put on my thinking cap and come up with something different.  This is an Asian lady looking through the window of a Fan Shop.  The shop and window was actually a rectangular plastic box which had originally contained a newly-bought pair of embroidery scissors.  I put up the wallpaper in the 'shop' and then hung four different kinds of fans on the wall.  I checked in Google's translator and the Japanese characters at the top of the shop mean "Fan Merchant," (at least according to Google!)

And how about the sign inside the shop at the top of the wall?  That's my little attempt at humor.  Google says that is the Japanese translation of "Buy One Get One Free."  Please forgive any incorrect translation.  I tried.

Three of the four fans were made with Washi paper.  The fourth fan was made with a flowered paper I liked.  The little Asian lady's kimono was made with colored cardstock and washi paper.
