    I’m trying these for my best friends wedding. She emailed me the template she wanted me to use from somewhere online and I foolishly worked for hours on the entire thing without testing what she sent me. Now when I print it off of word it won’t show the fan pieces around the text. So, I’ve been searching for anyone else who may have been working with one of these templates, that led me to your site. I tried printing yours too and it does the same thing. How do you get the fan template to print around the text? Thanks for your help!

    If you send me your email address I will send you the template that I have. It prints the lines. My issue is that the eyelet does not allow the fan pieces to move at all.

    Hello! I love what you have done! Can you please tell me how you can make the fan template larger?

    Due to several requests, I updated the post and included a larger version of the template. It’s now available for download above.

    Please note that I usually respond to comments to this post via email, not here.

    Hi Aylee,

    I think you totally rock. The stuff you create is beautiful and it’s wonderful of you to share it with us! I am trying to DIY a program fan (one that has a wooden stick). Do you have any templates or advise you could offer me? I was trying to do cool designs like those you have in the example above (I love the decorations and the fonts!) but it comes out looking pretty pathetic… Any advise you could offer would be greatly appriciated!

    I have gotten a few requests for my copy of the template. It is the exact same one as is available for download, so I will not be sending out my copy anymore.

    I did find eyelets with longer shanks at

    How do you cut it? With scissors by hand?

    Hi, Aylee. I LOVE your fan programs. I am going to attempt to DIY however I am very interested in having you create a monogram or two and perhaps help me with a design for the bottom of the fan where the eyelet goes. Do you have an email address so I can send you what I have found design wise and see if you think it’s possible and also discuss what’s on your timeline?? Thanks so much!! Thanks for sharing these fabulous ideas and your work at such a reasonable price! It really is a HUGE help especially when it’s crunch time. Have a great day! ~ Aubrey
