DIY Program fan template and Invite Instructions

This program fan template has 5 leaves, double sided. The tassels are 1.5 inches long. I bought them from M&J Trimmings in Manhattan for $0.40 each.

These instructions are for pocketfold invites. Look in my albums for more photos. Feel free to FM me if you have any questions.











The paper I used for my pocketfold is the Stardream Metallic Gold in cardstock. It was custom cut to size in 6'x14-1/2' so all I have to do is fold them. There is an additional $20 for custom cutting.

The text paper (Iced Gold) and the red paper (Inferno) used for the border were also purchased from the same website.

If you are going to use a metallic paper or any irredescent paper, make sure you use a laser printer so the ink doesn't smudge. I used the HP Laser Jet 2605 dn or you can bring it to a print shop.

For the rhinestones, see my post in the DIY forum....

Re: DIY Program fan template and Invite Instructions

Those came out amazing! How did you print on the metallic paper? Also, I'm planning on making the fan programs as well. Where did you find that template?

Thanks,
Jen

To print on metallic paper I highly suggest a laser printer. I made the template myself.

Re: DIY Program fan template and Invite Instructions

Everything looks so great. Where did you find the rhinestone buckles for the invites? I've been looking all over for a great deal.

22 weeks old or not, these items bear a second look.

That's how you do it!
