@princesskay13:  Not that I’m DIY inclined in the least but I want to make fans also for my August wedding. From what I’ve read on here I learned:

Those sticks you can get from Hobby Lobby or a craft store, the black and white paper looks like heavy cardstock with the corners cut with one of those things that does round corners. The actual program looks the same, white heavy cardstock, cut rounded corners and a basic template using MS Word or maybe even MS Publisher. It should be heavy because you want it to be stiff enough to give off a breeze.

I hope other DIY people chime in!!

@WestieGirl:  I think you have the gist of it.  I’m planning on using 8.5″x11″ paper and fold it in half hamburger style (I don’t know how else to describe it) and gluing those together so I don’t have to wory about cutting two pieces exactly the same to match up. Then I’m going to pring the actual info and glue it to each side and round the corners with punches from Michael’s.

As of right now I’m going to do a wordsearch or game on the back and the info on the front since we have a super small Wedding Party and not a lot going on in the actual ceremony.

I used this picture, and photoshop. Made one big page of 4 of them and deleted the white so that the background was transparent!
