HELP ME: DIY Program Fans!

Anyone here DIY their program fans?! If so, I NEED HELP! With 12 dayz to go I need to at least get started on making them!!! I am meeting with my Pastor very soon (hopefully this week he hasn't emailed me back) and we are going to finalize the ceremony.


That means after I meet with him I need to get the ball rolling with making my own program fans. Since it'll be to late to order them. What is the easiest way to do this? Microsoft Word? A different program? I have all the supplies I need just need some help getting started! 


If you've made your own. Show me, show me, show me! ;)
Thanks ladies!

I personnally have not made the program fans, but a friend did for her wedding.  I'm pretty sure she just made them in Microsoft Word and printed them on heavy paper and pasted them to giant popsicle sticks. You can do some fancy stuff in Word when you insert the word box. Sorry I'm not much help, good luck!

We didn't really do a full program, but basically used the fans to beat the heat and keep people entertained while waiting for us to start (the crossword puzzle on the back).

I did mine in PowerPoint so that I could move the text/photos around easily. The front side was a simple outline of the ceremony and the back side listed the bridal party/families and a brief thank you.


I designed them so that they fit two to a page. Then I simply printed and cut them. I used a rounded paper punch to round the corners, but you could easily skip that step!


The finished product was a front side, back side, popsicle stick and ribbon. I used rubber cement to glue the two pages together. It was very easy to work with and held the paper well.


I had 150 guests and I made 60-70ish and it was the perfect amount.


Here is a pic!

(Ribbon fell off on this one, but it was at the base of the fan!)

I'm not sure which way you are doing them but I did the petal fans from a kit at Michael's and I used word. I had to print a few to get the alignment correct on the paper but it wasn't too bad. Got them all done in a few hours. I m not sure photo 3375465-1
