    Finally took a couple mins last night to make a logo (by pretending I know how to use powerpoint) and decorating some sandalwood fans I got off OT for the ceremony.

    I'm really happy with how they turned out and the fans should come in handy at 2pm in the Mexican heat, lol.

    This is my first DIY, I was scared but it was lots of fun.

          Jackie - these look great - just wondering how is the quality of these fans? I'm trying to decide between these or the raffia ones?

                      Thanks for the compliments ladies!! They are definitely super compact and stack nicely into a little box for travel and should be SUPER functional in the sand.

                      The quality of them was very good and they'll hold up for the day/week or as take homes if guests want. I got them from Oriental trading, but I'm sure sandalwood fans are all about the same quality and about a dollar each. These had the design painted on them and on about 8 or so the paint had also splattered onto the back which was supposed to be plain. I didn't complain to OT and feel it too much of a hassle to do a return so plain fans are a safer bet!

                      I'll try to make up a template for future brides when I find all my craft stuff. I had to suddenly move out of my old place as they decided it would be fun to jackhammer my roof from 7am - 6pm everyday for the rest of the summer...uuuuugh. I'll keep everyone posted though. The template is a bit weird since you can't cut the piece rectangular since the fan is wider at the top than bottom.

                      Back to planning!
