      Please steal away! I got the idea from a girl on the knot : )
      A tip- if you want to get the criss-cross effect at the top of the handle you will need a pair of scissors or butter knife or something similiar to make space inbetween the rows of raffia to pull the ribbon through. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the back to look as nice as the front.

          Wow, 50 cents is a steal...I hope they have some left for me to buy, lol. I cant wait. And the idea of using the orchids to spruce them up is wonderful. :)

            Very nice. Way better than what I had in mind! Add me to the stealing list.

              Wow. Thanks for the tip. I was going to buy the same fans from another site and pay more. I love good buys like this.

              Thanks!

                  I got my fans from this site as well. The quality is great for the price and the shipping is super fast. I definitely recommend them.

                    I had to take a family road trip this past weekend, so I put everyone to work during the car ride and finished my fans, here is a pic of the different colors and styles of flowers I used:
