    Somebody had posted pictures of their programme fans... and I can't for the life of me find the thread!

    Their 2 outer sections (cover?) were more of a plastic material (as opposed to heavy card stock) and they had somehow 'stamped' or 'imprinted' a pattern onto the material.

    Can anyone help me out with this? I want to know:
    - what the material was/is
    - where one picks up the tool to do the impression work

    Any and all help would be much appreciated!

      Hi, maybe you can find it in here. I think I remember seeing the same thing. I hope this helps.

      it was Sarah's, so cute. i'm not sure if she did them herself or got them from aylee.

      but i have seen the exact template floating around on here..

      (i edited this because i would rather support/promote our own Sarah, i didn't realize she makes those now too as part of her blooming business!)

        It was mine... it has an embossed cover. I did them each by hand, although you can buy paper with that same look- much easier!

        Here's my original post when I was planning my wedding over a year ago:

        I also now make these for people that are DIY-challenged :)

          Thanks so much, Sarah! You're the best!

          And be advised... I'm going to give them a whirl - but if they don't turn out right, I'll be hunting you down!

          Can I ask how heavy the paper you used was? For some reason I had it in my head that it was a plastic of sorts! And did yo emboss the fans AFTER printing them out?!

            I use 80lb cardstock. The embossed leaves aren't printed. I do cut them out before I emboss them...

              Can I ask what size eyelets you used? And do I need to add eyelet 'washers' in order to keep them secure?

              I had been thinking of laminating each page and wonder how that will work with the eyelets? Are 6 laminated programme pages going to be an issue?!! Too many & too thick?! HELP!

                  I used brads, not eyelets. I just used a hole punch, and put the brad through.

                    Thanks Sarah, I appreciate it. I would like to avoid the way the brads look on the rear of the programme... (that unfinished look) Is there a solution to this? (which is why I was thinking eyelets) I am SO not knowledgable about crafting...

                    deznchris2006 - I'm kindof having the same problem myself! Don't know what to put on there to fill it up! I like the look of 6 sleeves though.
                    I think I've seen some ceremony information... readings, order of events, processional music, etc. I could really do w/some suggestions too! HELP!
