I am doing 2 pieces taped together b/c I don’t like the look of the top of the stick being visible on one side.

I’m doing one piece of card stock and it looks like it will work out fine for me. I havent finished it yet though.

@JamaicaBride: If you glue all the sides together, won’t the top not be visible anymore? How big are your fans going to be? I’m folding an 8.5 by 11 into two. I think any bigger would be too big.

@spoonoutmyheart:  I tried it both ways…and the paper just seemed sturdier when using two pieces, (one on each side of the stick)

i am doing two pieces of cardstock and using hot glue to hold it together with the stick in the center. 2 pieces of paper makes a much better fan than one piece

I did two pieces on either side of the stick.

Hmm, I’m still waiting on my buddy in marketing to finish mine, but I was hoping for him to get everything on half of an 8.5×11 sheet.  I wasn’t quite sure how to get the two sides of the paper to line up properly or what to use to bond them with, so I took the easy way out and just figured I’d leave the stick out.  Hmm, whenever printing is done I will let you guys know how this worked out.  I’m using 110 lb card stock.

We are going with the two pieces, with our program on one side and our initials on the other side. I would definately second going with hot glue instead of tape too. You’ll have to show us your finished product!

I ended up doing 2 pieces, each a little smaller than half a standard sheet of paper. And I used 65 lb. card stock. I guess I cheated sticking them together. I used an adhesive runner to adhere the stick but then I ran one side of the paper through my xyron and stuck it to the other side. That seems to be really secure so I’m not worried.

Am I the only one who can’t seem to trim paper or line things up stright, like ever? I have to trim every. single. one. But I’ve always kinda failed at straight lines. 😉

@lox:  You read my mind!  How in the world are you double sided bees cutting these things evenly?  That was something else that is really making me lean more towards the one sided.

I have a paper cutter…got it from Michaels, cuts straight everytime!  Also has a ruler on it so you can measure exactly where you want to cut.  I use it for scrap booking too, I would die without this thing, makes life sooo much easier!

For the fans, I’m using the paper cutter to cut the size I want and then once the two sheets of paper are glued together, I’m using a corner punch to round the edges.

@jenroh1984:  That is smart – I am going to try that as well if he ends up giving me the double sided goodness.  Thanks so much for the suggestion1  I already have the corner rounder thing, and I’ll just use the paper cutter here at work.
