        I ordered similiar fans from Oriental trading. I got orchids from Michaels and Hobby Lobby to attach and I'm wrapping the handles in pink and purple ribbons. I've only done 2 so far,excuse the extra ribbon this is my practice one

        The bright pink orchids are from Michaels and are better quality. They almost feel like rubber. The purple ones are silk and are from Hobby Lobby. Both were 50% off so they were about $2.50 per stem.

              I think they look great. Regarding the quality, I would think they are hand made with the intricate weaving so they will not all be perfect. I got a dozen from Oriental Trading too and they look good to me, much bigger than I expected. Since I got these just for the men, I must resist the urge to girlify them with ribbons and flowers, but I do love the way they look with punches of color.

                Courtney, what size ribbon did you use to wrap the fan handle? Was it a satin ribbon?

                  Yep, satin ribbon size 5/8. I'm using glue dots to secure the ribbon- hobby lobby and michaels sell these in the scrapbooking section. I always burn myself with a glue gun so these are perfect for me. And they don't leave those glue strings.
