i’ve had a bit of a problem with mine – but they worked.

I used a glue stick for the paper that i printed off on the front and back of the fan – and the brown cardstock (2 pieces) were glued together with a heavier “SoBo” glue – but you don’t want to use a TON because it does warp a little…

my husband drilled all the holes in the sticks for me.

1 thing I should have noted – make sure to use a really good heavy glue stick (i like the one that goes on “blue” but dries clear)…I ran out and ended up using cheap glue sticks that I had – and I think that was the small issue i had with a few of the fans not turning out right – the ones that used the other glue stick (goes on blue…) were great!

I used a trial with 3M spray mount adhesive and that seemed strong enough. I haven’t printed my programs yet because I’m still finalizing the ceremony, but hopefully it’ll be soon.
