            I did two different fans.
            The first one is the actual fan template from Aylee. This will be on each guest's chair at the wedding.

            The second fan is going to sit on top of each plate at dinner. The menu will sit on top of the fan. This fan has a thank you note tied to the bottom.
            These fans came from whiteaisle.com : Click the image to open in full size.

                All of my paperstock is from Discount Wedding Invitations, Vellum Paper, Vellum Envelopes, Card Stock Source - Paperandmore.com. I used crimson metallic cardstock for the outside leaves, and champagne metallic cardstock on the inside. The text is printed on platinum vellum and affixed to the champagne cardstock with spray adhesive.

                I actually embossed each outside piece using a Fiskars texture plate and texturing tool. I bought them at Hobby Lobby, but here's a link to what they look like: Fiskars 12-5659 6pc Texture Plate Set II: Widget Supply. I used the "filigree" plate, which is the second from the left on the top row. Warning- this is a time consuming project!

                Edited to add: I used brads from Hobby Lobby. They don't list their measurement, but my guess is that they're about 1/4 inch in diameter.
