how much ribbon per fan

Recommended Posts

Kashmira,

 

They are 10" fans and I plan to wrap the handles so that none of the handle shows. I was planning on red and turquoise or if I can't find a good turquoise, aqua (not together obviously). I like your red - where did you get it (I'm in LA too)?

 

A yard - wow, ok!

Yup - at least a yard - since your fans are 10 inches the handles are probably larger than mine were but I'm assuming you're only wrapping around the handle (not the center part like I did). I bought my ribbon at Michael's in Burbank - the one near the Target - you may have to go to a few stores in order to get enough for 108 fans (and by "may have to" I mean "you WILL have to" wink.gif The good thing about Micheal's is if you buy too much you can return the unused ones. I can't remember if they give you your money back or just a credit but I'm sure you could find something else there to use for the wedding anyway!

Leia - those are SO pretty! I love how you included the flower! Were those real or fake?

I used my arm span as a measuring tool. So i would say I used close to 5 feet per fan. I wrapped them really tight and tied cute bows with that length.

Well they didn't really have the color I wanted at Michaels or Joannes so I'm off to Flaxpaperandpen today - hoping they have what I want but not marked up too much! So I'm guessing I'll need a little over 100 yards?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
