You know we LOVE DIY Projects here at The Budget Savvy Bride, and anything that helps you save money and get crafty at the same time is a win in our book! That’s why I was SO pumped when Adrienne of Cherish Paperie got in touch with us to share about their fabulous DIY Fan Program Kits! I’ve seen many a bride lust over the idea of having fan programs, but having them commissioned by a designer can be a little hard on the wallet because of the detailed design and assembly time involved- so Cherish Paperie came up with a way to give DIY and crafty brides the ability to do it all themselves for a great price! Allow me to introduce you to Perfect Petals™:

Our new sponsor Cherish Paperie offers DIY Program Fan Kits with a number of fabulous options to suit your budget. Their program kits come in white or ecru (off white), and there are even shimmer metallic petals for accents OR pre-printed cover petals in a number of different themes/designs! You can get as fancy as your budget allows, but the main kits include 250 petals which would make 50 5-petal programs, but you could use fewer to make the kit stretch farther if you wanted! (See the chart below)
These fans are completely DIY and are micro-perforated 2 per sheet and shipped flat for you to print and assemble. Cherish Paperie provides a Word template and general instructions to help set up the printing on the fans, but options for printing vary from printer to printer (see FAQ page for printer details).
No eyelets or fasteners are included in the kits, so you will need a standard hole puncher to punch a small hole at the base of each panel, and purchase eyelets, brads or ribbons to bind the panels together…. get creative to design a look that perfectly accents your wedding! You save money by printing and assembling the fans yourself – cost of DIY fans start at less than $1.00 each!
Making your own Fan Program is easy with Perfect Petals:
Personalize the petals, using the Word document template or create your own template in your favorite software.
Then print on the pre-perforated fan pages.
Punch out the printed fan petal and secure to the rest of the petals with your own brad, eyelet or ribbon.
Voila! Your own personalized fan program!
Check out some of the awesome designs created with the petal kits below. The possibilities really are endless!
