          I haven't transported them to the wedding, since it's in October still.

          I know most gals order the rafia fans because of the packability, but I really liked the white ones! Though when the vendor sent them to me there didn't seem to be a problem with packing them as they lay pretty flat. I ordered a couple to see if I liked them and that is one of the "mock ups." I'm going to send the bulk of the fans straight from the vendor to my accommodating wedding coordinator and assemble them in Hawaii (I'm precutting the ribbon and such). I only have to make about 35 of 'em, so it shouldn't be toooo bad.

          Thanks for all the nice compliments. :)

              The Glassine #4 Envelopes I used are 3 1/4 inches x 4 7/8 inches.

              The #3 Envelopes are 2 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches, which are just the size of a Kleenex tissue from their travel packs. They were too tight a squeeze for me. I wanted to just be able to stick the tissue into the envelope without fuss!

              I'm also thinking about getting some orange floral design tissues from the Tissue Store instead of using plain white.

              The Tissue Store for pocket tissues hankies sniffs

              Still thinking on these.

                  Super cute. Just an FYI to all future DIYers, on the Tears of Joy packets you can probably make your own labels using a shipping label template from publisher.

                      If I had known about dafont.com and — iDiY before I had made my Tears of Joy packets, I would have made my own label. Since then, I've gotten sticker crazy and have been creating my own! The Staples sticker paper is great!
