      I originally was not going to do programs since we had a small wedding party and are not doing anything special at the ceremony.  But then I started thinking that its going to be hot and people are going to need fans.  I didn't want to make paddle fans since they are so common and instead embarked on making petal fans based on samples I saw here.  Kudos to the girls who did those well because mine sucked.  I loved the design - the petals were small enough that it didn't look like I had so little info.  I had 2 pages with info on white card stock and 3 pages of blue card stock alternating.  Well that was the problem - it looked great for the other BDW brides but I could not cut the top circular part well.  It looked OK with all one color but when I put them together it was so obviously off.  So all of that went in the trash and I started over with just plain ones.


      I took a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 white card stock and divided it evenly in 4 sections to become my 4 pages.  I have a cover page with out logo, one with the wedding info (pretty much same as our invite wording), the wedding party and a thank you.  I cut blue card stock slightly larger and longer, folded a piece over on the top, hole punched it and tied it together with raffia.  So, they aren't actual fans, but they can be used to fan yourself.

        Just got back and I think these went over well.  It was HOT!!!!!  When I looked out to the audience a lot of people were using them to fan themselves.  So glad I made them!

                I'll tell ya, raffia isn't easy to work with.  it was a pain in the butt threading it through the hole punches.  After they were done I noticed a grammatical error on the thank you page, but there was no way I was redoing it!  I don't know why grammar/spell check didn't pick it up.  Oh well, I'm betting no one even noticed.
