    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!
