      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'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.
