    what’s the approximate cost for the all the supplies to make the paddle fans? do craft stores usually sell the paper in bulk or individual sheets?

    Thank you so much for posting these online for free. I love the different shapes you made. It will be hard to choose which one to use! I’m making my own wedding program fans and this is a life-saver.

    I recommend using a box cutter over a exacto knife, as thick paper can break the blade. Once I’m finished, I plan to tie cute ribbon at the base of the fan around the stick.

    I just want to make sure I am understanding this correctly – I am using the first template shown on this page. When I print a sample the dotted lines show up – are these the lines I am supposed to be cutting using my x-acto knife? or am I confused?

    Could you please send me the template for the 4 piece wedding fans attached with the ribbon?
    Can the paper needed be run through a ink jet printer?
