I just finish making them...what I did was I started on the handle from left to right then without cutting the ribbon I started wraping the ribbon around the top of the handle but before putting on the ribbon I used glue dots on specfic spot...

so if you start wraping the ribbon by the left side inner handle and keep wraping around until you get to the right side, all u have to do is wrap the top part

I hope this help u

I figured out how to do the bottom half of the handle just not the top. Do you have to wrap the top separate?
Thank you so much!

I did mine all in one. I just passed the ribbon through the holes in the fan at the top. I put the short end through, wrapped it down below where the rest of the ribbon would cover it, anchored it with a glue dot, and then wrapped the long end around and thru once more - so you get a figure 8 of sorts thru the actual fan part at the top. then I just started down and around the handle.

 

Hope that helps!

I don't have a photo of mine that shows the wrap very well - the hang tags are in the way. If you get stuck, let me know and I'll take a photo of the leftover ones.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
