STEP 1: Design your template.

  • Using your favorite design program or by purchasing the design online, you will need two 5.5” x8.5” designs that are set up side by side on a regular 8½ x 11 Landscape page layout. Example:

*Design Note: By adding different sections to your program, it really makes a nice unique piece for your guests to enjoy; I love to include sections like: Fun Facts about the couple, Order of Ceremony Events, Fun Wedding Party Silhouettes, Parents Section, Reception info and a Fun Thank You, Timeline or Game on the back of fan!

STEP 3: Printing your Design:

• When choosing your cardstock, I recommended using a brand with at least 100# thickness
• For a quick and easy printing process, take your ready to print file to your favorite local print shop, I recommend Kinkos, Staples or Office Max.
• But for the busy bride, our shop also offers printing and assembly services as well.

Step 2: Preparing the Paddle Fan

1. Start by folding all the printed designs in half.
2. Using your double sided tape, line the top half of your wooden paddle stick
3. On the inside right of the folded cardstock, place the wooden paddle stick at the bottom middle portion of the right side of the page (with the sticky side down and so half of the stick is sticking out from the bottom of the page)
4. Use the double sided tape to line the rest of the right side of the page
5. Fold over the left side so it completely covers the side with the wooden stick and the double sided tape and press it down to secure. The paddle fan should now have its final shape.

Step 3: Additional Unique Touches

• Use the edge rounder on all the sides to add an elegant rounded touch.
• Cut the ribbon at about 12” and tie around the wooden stick for another stylish touch.
• If you have a game on the back side of the program, using a rubber band works great to secure them in place (tying the ribbon around the rubber band looks beautiful as well)

Hi Kym,
I am very interested in purchasing your Silhouette Wedding Program but cannot seem to find it anywhere. I had it in my favorites on etsy, but it is no longer there.
Should I go about finding the program another way?
Thank you!

This is a great idea. What type of paper did you use? I see it says card stock but I'm curious what weight it was. 80lb? 110lb? Also was it a textured paper, matte, or glossy? I'm going to try this. Thanks!

April 22, 2013

Michael - paper weight will depend on what your printer can handle so look at your printer specs. 110lb will feel like it came from a professional printer, but again look at your printer specs to see if it will handle that thickness. It appears that she used matte - be again this is all about personal preference. Good luck!
