Ahoy Matey

 I have to say I love all things to do with the ocean...especially ANCHORS! I am even having a nautical themed 30th birthday party. I also looooove stripes... so nautical anything is just amazing in my book. I was working on some decor for my bday and thought I would share a little sneak peak before the big day!
Step 1: Take 12x12 scrapbook paper and make an accordion. Do this twice.
Step 2:Now combine the two pieces of paper and gather them in the center and tie a piece of baker's twine and secure.

Step 3: Now you can open up each side of the fan and use double sided tape to secure each side forming a circle. I added a circle piece to the center to add a little extra charm:).

Voila! You have a firecracker/burst/rosette thingy. These are really inexpensive and easy. They would be super cute at a 4th of July party or a kids party...and of course any nautical themed 30 year old's party:)
