Sarah great job! You must be so happy to get some stuff out of the way.

 

The fans you did, those are the ones I was talking about in another thread that I had such a hard time describing, I think I was describing them for Jackie, they came out so good!

 

speaking of jackie, where is she?

I made my programs using Aylee's template. Here's her website: aylee. I used the same metallic crimson and metallic champagne paper that I've been using for everything else. For the front and back petal, I used Fiskars Texture Plates to emboss a filigree design. The wording is on the champagne petals. I opened the program in the opposite direction for the pics so the last names are covered...

I also took inspiration from Rebecca and made Thank you tags for the white fans from Whiteaisle.com. I will put these at each place setting.

I'm sure this has alrady come up ... but so many pages to try to read through ... so, how did you cut these? I will need to make several dozen, so not sure if I'm up for hand-cutting all of these pages. But I LOVE them! Suggestions?

I'd highly recommend investing in a paper cutter if you're doing a lot of DIY projects...you can cut all the long lines with the paper cutter, and the round lines by hand. These are a bit of a PITA to cut out :)

Can you make any recommendations? We have a regular paper cutter at work, but do you use anything special for the round edges ... or just bring a lot of patience to the table with you that day?

Lots of free time in front of the tv was spent cutting those round edges. I never found an easy way. That's the problem with these, but I think the overall look is worth it. You also don't really need as many pages as mine had...they look totally fine with 3 or 4, especially if you have a ton to make.

Do you know anything about rotary cutters? Wonder if those do the round edges easier than regular scissors? (I'm new to the world of DIY, but am loving it!)

I've just never been very good with one, I'm more coordinated with plain old scissors! Plus, it's thick paper, so it's not like you can do multiple layers. Sorry, no help with that one!

Tami, since I had 100 programs to cut out and mine were about 6 pages plus cover and back, I had to cut out 800 blades, my hubby and I went to the craft store and wound up getting oval templates and a free hand cutter to cut them all out. If you have a ton to do, me recommendation is not to do the fan shape and come up with something that has a template.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
