    Ladies,
    Can you estimate how much ribbon you would need per fan?

    Thanks!

      Half the length of my coffee table!!! lol actually maybe two feet? I just cut a piece first then tried to see how it worked.. I wish I would have used more on mine and when through the part of handle that meets the fan or tied in a bow at the top.

              I believe I bought it from my local Michael's.

                Hmm - maybe it just looks more turquoise in your photos!

                  Girls - the fans look great! I have been wanting to do this project, and now I think I'm going to. Oriental trading co is where they are from? I think I'm going to put my program on them like I saw on here - any suggestions on making a program? How will I know what will take place at the ceremony - guess I might have to wait until I speak with WC at the resort?? Is there a "typical" wedding program anyone could show me?

                    My Mom and SIL helped finish my fans while in town over Easter. They turned out really nice.
