Here is a picture of my Fan and Tears of Joy Packet for our wedding ceremony. They turned out better than I thought, and I owe it to the ideas I saw on BDW! Thanks girls! (This is also the first time I've posted pics, so I hope this works.)

For the Fans:


I used the white paper paddle fans from Lunar Bazaar:

White Paper Paddle Fan<div class=sub>(Only $1.60 each for 24+)</div> - F2WH


Golden Orange Real Touch Orchids from Flowers by Design (13 bucks for a stem of 12 blooms):

Soft Touch Medium Dendrobium Orchid Spray w/12 Flowers & 3 Buds


The ribbon I purchased off of eBay seller Omegacraft. I was able to get 100 yards each of 7/8" and 3/8" satin ribbon for 15 bucks!

For the Tears of Joy Packets:


I used Glassine #4 Stamp envelopes that I got from eBay seller Haworth57. (50 envelopes for 3 bucks plus shipping). I ordered the labels from myownlabels.com and used the 3/8" satin ribbon. I used slightly larger envelopes than I've seen with other DIY packets, since I read that some brides had to refold the tissues.


I used zots to hold everything in my projects together. I'm now in love with zots.


I'm quite proud of my work! My fiance couldn't stop fanning himself with the fan! wink.gif bunny_4.gif
