    I am curious about this too – i am getting married in June and I started making some tissue paper pomaders and was recently told that they will fade by my wedding day.

    I figured i could just put them in a black garbage bag or something once i am done to avoid fading, but i dunno.

    I don’t think it will be that much of an issue if you don’t store them in direct sunlight.  I bought the materials for our invites this time last year for our DIY invites, and left them sitting in a cardboard box in my living room for a couple months no problem.

    However, cautionary tale – do not store your envelopes in your damp basement.  We tossed our leftover envelopes in our basement and I brought them up earlier this month thinking I’d use them for our thank you cards.  Yep, ALL sealed shut.

    I’ve already started some DIY projects, too. We’re sealing everything tightly in ziploc bags, and it’s at least working so far :),

    The earlier, the better. The closer you get to the day, the more things you’ll have to do! 🙂 I’d start.. and it builds the excitement!!

    If you are using anything scrapbook or archival quality it should not fade at all.  I paper craft and have only had issues with things that are left in direct sunlight for long, long periods of time.  If you keep the fans in a box, in a cool, not damp place you should be fine.  Good luck!  Post pictures when you are done!
