    That's a great idea Christine! I think I ended up cutting out over 200 pieces when all was said and done. AND I embossed the front & back of each fan. These were VERy time consuming!

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.
      That's probably the route I will need to take based on the number of guests. Is your template handy or a place I can find one similar?

                I'm just checking off one thing after another off the DIY paper projects list this week... 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. Click the image to open in full size.

                These are a heat alternative to the raffia fans
