It's gittin hot n here...

I'm having two programs. Since we are getting married in a chapel, I always thought it was quite warm in there, so we decided we needed fans for our guests. We took the program fan idea from online and made it our own. I just couldn't imagine spending 3$ a program when I could make the entire batch for 15$.

I used lollipop sticks from the craft store, thick cardstock from Staples, doublestick tape, and a few cans of white spray paint. I spray painted the sticks white and let them dry while I printed out the programs. I used MS Word to print them out. Trial and error of course a few times. Then I folded it in half and cut part of paper to make it a better fit. Cornered all the edges and proceeded to tape the sticks and the papers together. End result:

I made these a few months ago. They turned out great and I love them ten times more than the ones I found online! Project took 1.5 hours from start to finish! (minus the overnight that I let the sticks to dry!)
